Anastasiya Volodina's profile

Educational centre for ecology&science. Diploma.

The theme that I chose for the project was born after watching one of the public speeches by Jaime Lerner (mayor and architect of Curitiba, which has become one of the largest and most attractive cities in Brazil).
He said: "It all depends on what and how we teach children. Then children will teach their parents. So teach children! I want to say that if we want to have sustainable development in the world, we have to work with all aspects, but never forget about the cities and the children. "
This words inspired me very much and I decided to create a place for cultural and ecological studies and activities for children and adults.
For this complex I selected an area at the east of Moscow called Kosino for the high ecological value of the three lakes of Ice Age origin. But unfortunately this area is very polluter by circle road and has no financial support from the major, so it looks like very abandoned place.

After an in-depth analysis of the territory from the point of modern functional zoning, boundaries of landscapes, cultural sites and the location of the area for historical sites, habitats of endangered species, as well as border protection zones of nature complexes, it became clear to me which  areas are priority for the urban transformation.
The main condition for the building project  was to make it low-rise and accesable for immobile group of the population and people with little children.

I wanted to create a possibility for immobile and disabled population to have a great view of the lake from the roof (6 meters high level).
So I have made a lot of rampants for them and you can see a big rampant that forms the volume of the building on the south-east.near narrow trading bloc.
