2 nuove stazioni metro per Mosca

architectural and design competition for Moscow

consegna 1a fase entro il 31 luglio 2014

La città di Mosca lancia un concorso internazionale di architettura per selezionare la miglior soluzione progettuale e artistica per le nuove stazioni metro di Solntsevo e Novoperedelkino.

In its scale, the Moscow Metropolitan's development programme is one of the largest in the world. It is by far the most ambitious of the city's infrastructure projects. The role of the Moscow Metro in shaping the image of the capital cannot be overstated. The construction of its most beautiful stations well served to demonstrate the scientific and technological advances made by the USSR.

In the late 1950s, architectural masterpieces in the Metro gave way to a new period in station design, that of the less appealing Khrushchyov era. As time moved on, the search for a new individual station image began: the monotony of standard solutions grew obsolete. This movement from the standard to the unique continues to the present day. Although stations continue to be built to a standard design, a marked effort is seen in individualising their artistic look - with each having its own unique design.

The fundamental aim of the present competition is to find an optimal architectural, artistic and design solution for the interior of Solntsevo and Novoperedelkino's passenger areas and pavilions over the stairway approaches. With minimalist solutions, the stations have to be contemporary, with bright and memorable design schemes. Emphasis must be placed on the light and colour aspects, and the combination of materials. Construction solutions and the materials used ought to correspond with the aims and conditions of the competition; to be rational and technically feasible. To develop a concept, it is recommended to recruit professional artists and designers who specialise in working with light.

This is an open, national, two-stage competition. Participation is open to designers and architects with experience in the drawing up of design documentation for the interiors of multifunctional public spaces. This is two-stage competition. Participation is open to designers and architects with experience in design documentation for the interiors of multifunctional public spaces.

The competition is national but foreign architects and designers are also accepted.

Depending upon the quality of the sketches submitted, the Jury reserves the right to vary the number of participants for either stage, to range from three to seven. In the second stage, the Jury will select a single winner for each station.

The prize fund for the Competition stands at 3,890,000 rubles (including VAT) and is to be divided between the 10 Participants who pass through to the second stage of the Competition. Each of the two winners will be invited to settle a contract for the implementation of their architectural and design concept to a sum no larger than 3 500 000 rubles.
