Project info

The park is crisscrossed by two categories of path networks: The first category is straight axes that connect important points in the park and enable quick traversal of the area. The vectors of these access routes are derived from a work by El Lissitzky and are symbolic of power and energy. The second category consists of paths that wind through the park and invite you to stroll. Various zones for sports and leisure activities are embedded in this network. Service pavilions for gastronomy are placed between the various facilities, as well as relaxation areas shaded by trees, inviting you to linger. Staggered rows of trees are arranged along the street as wind protection. Two sculptures, the shapes of which are derived from the figure skating moves of Nikolai Alexandrovich Panin-Kolomenkin, are mounted on the roof of the two existing ticket boxes located along the arena’s main entrance axis.
