Charles Renfro Discusses DS+R's Winning Proposal for Zaryadye Park in Moscow

At last year's Moscow Urban Forum, Charles Renfro discussed Diller Scofidio + Renfro's design for Zaryadye Park in Moscow. Located in the heart of the city, the park employs Wild Urbanist principles, which seek to emulate Russia's diverse landscapes – tundra, steppe, forest, and wetland – against a backdrop of architectural landmarks that includes the Kremlin, Red Square, and St. Basil’s Cathedral.

In the words of Charles Renfro, "While Moscow is a great international city and Z-Park will be a model for the world, it is a park for Russia made from Russia. It samples the natures of Russia and merges them with the city, to become a design that could only happen here. It embodies a wild urbanism, a place where architecture and landscape are one.”

Designed as a collaboration between Diller Scofidio + Renfro with Hargreaves Associates and Citymakers, the park will open to the public in 2018.
