Great cities deserve great spaces, and this park will create a great city space....

Utterly dreadful! Architectural media like this must start to discuss these kinds city projects. Are these not just willful intrusions without any understanding of context? We architects are tasked to create spaces that make cities for citizens and not visual fodder for the mags.

Well done LDA. A great win for a great team.

LDA Design and UHA London win high-profile design competition for Serp and Molot Masterplan in Moscow 

Despite finalist ratings suggesting that MVRDV was the frontrunner in a design competition for the Serp and Molot masterplan in Moscow, it has now been revealed that LDA Design with UHA London has been granted the winning title.

Bernie Foulkes, Partner at LDA Design, said: “What set our scheme apart was the idea of using a new city park to act as the catalyst for transformation. As the designers of the London 2012 Olympic Park we used our knowledge and experience from one of Europe’s biggest regeneration projects to guide our vision for Serp and Molot.”

Serp and Molot (Hammer and Sickle) is a 58-hectare former industrial site destined for redevelopment as part of an international competition held by the City of Moscow and Donstroy Invest. WAN’s Business Information Service advertised the competition in September 2013: click here to view the brief.

The masterplan is due for completion in 2021 and will provide more than 1.8 million sq m of mixed-use space with an estimated investment of €3.76bn. The four other firms shortlisted for the project were MVRDV, Ateliers Lion Associés, Project Meganom, and de Architekten Cie.

Ricardo Mateu, Director of UHA LONDON, said: “Serp and Molot continues UHA LONDON’s track record of successful collaborations with LDA Design - marrying a strong masterplan and landscape design narrative with innovative and futuristic architecture - Serp and Molot will be a game changer for the Moscow real estate market and become a lifestyle choice for Muscovites.”
