In this issue, we are covering the results of the competition for the architectural and town planning concept of “Rublevo-Arkhangelskoe”, which was once supposed to be turned into a “city of millionaires”. The competition took place in the fall of 2018, with three teams winning: Archea Associatii, Nikken Sekkei, and Zaha Hadid Architects, each one in collaboration with their respective Russian partner – ABD architects, UNK project, and TPO Pride Architects.
In the city of Vladivostok, ABD architects are reconstructing the historical cold storage warehouse, are designing the culture and business center, and are organizing the comfortable public territories between these two buildings.
The project of the second stage of the complex "Zapadnye Vorota" ("Western Gate"), located north of the Mozhaisk Highway, develops the theme of the modern European architecture that has already been successfully implemented in the first stage of this large-scale project.
This year, the list of the regional laureates of International Property Awards includes over two dozen of Russian projects. For the next stage of the contest, entitled "The World's Best" - only twelve will be short-listed.
