Krymskaya embankment at Moscow – Project description from the architects: A once unappealing Krymskaya embankment, only recently separated from the Muzeon Park and the Central House of Artists, has been transformed beyond recognition: what once was a road has turned into a lane for pedestrians and bicycles. Fountains have been set up, wave-shaped artist pavilions have replaced a chaotic exhibition area and small hills with benches scattered about have become part of the landscape park thus extending a green strip from Gorky Park on the other side of the Krymsky Bridge.
Objective: To turn a quiet four-lane road into a new city landmark, thereby bringing life to the deserted area of Muzeon Park between the Central House of Artists and the Moskva River.
Solution: To link the Krymskaya embankment to a 10 km pedestrian and cycling route that starts at Vorobievy gori and to replace the road with a landscape park with distinct transit and sport features while preserving the artists’ exhibition zone.
The transformed Krymskaya embankment is the first year-round landscape park in the centre of Moscow. In Summer the wave-shaped multilevel layout can be used for walking, cycling or roller-skating while in Winter it is a perfect setup for sledding, skating or skiing
The central design element of the embankment is the wave: wave-shaped benches, pedestrian and cycling waves create an artificial landscape.
