Lybedsky Boulevard, Ryaza
1 phase 5.13 Ha, 0.8 km
2 phase 14.6 Ha, 1.5 km
program: improvement of the city boulevard together with LLC «Strelka KB»
Lybedsky Boulevard is part of the phased improvement of important pedestrian paths connecting historical sights and anchor attractions of Ryazan. The site is located near the Kremlin, because logistics and the distribution of pedestrian, bicycle and automobile traffic are important.
The first goal is to create a modern urban environment that responds to the urban context, meets the requirements of the city, has a modern design, is saturated with various types of spaces and various functions, has different plots of use. The task was complicated by the variety of urban zones adjacent to the territory: these are busy transport streets, a natural and historical reserve, physically autonomous sections of state institutions and the residential sector, including with low-rise buildings.
The second goal is to return the «memory of the place». We wanted to draw the attention of future visitors to the boulevard to its history, turn to geography and landscape, and also worked with a green terrain. The boulevard is laid along the channel enclosed in the collector of the Lybed River and still stores artifacts of the era when the river was an important part of the urban environment. Thus, our task was to maintain a balance between the two approaches - radical and conservative. We believe that this design strategy allows you to create and recreate modern and at the same time authentic spaces.
The identity of any territory is an element of the technology of branding a place. The re-creation of the history of the place means not only collecting and showing events or artifacts available for familiarization, but also turning it into an interesting object that causes a sense of pride and continuity of historical traditions.
