Project location: Odessa, Primorskaya str., 47 Actual Status:
Actual Status: Project proposal
Area: 100 000 m2
Architectural style declaration: Irony and paradox. Theatricality and complex form associations.
Features of the architectural solution: The project is unusual because the new public space is created in the old city which has rigid quarterly structure. This area will be attached to the city park directly, but not through the street. We propose the creation of a powerful magnet for the development and revitalization of a touristical, recreational pedestrian vector: Potemkin Stairs - Shaht Palace - Odessa Art Museum - Tropical Sun. All buildings in terms of plastic of architecture are completely different. It is sounds like individual instruments in the orchestra. Each structure or function has its own sound.
Features of functional zoning: Horizontal distribution is the basic plastic method of spatial organization. First of all it is connected with the relief of earth. The height difference between the streets Marinesco and Primorskaya is 20-25 meters. Visually and functionally the complex is divided vertically into the 3 spaces. First, bottom - The Square(public space) - place of city communication. Second, middle - semi-private (mixed-use) space which belongs to the consumer, depending on the function. The third, upper - private space, which can communicate with other spaces only by the request.
