Autumn Marathon Park
Best Implemented Landscape Architecture Project
About the project
The first ever public venue dedicated to the extremely popular Soviet movie – The Autumn Marathon by Georgy Danelia – was established in the Vasileostrovsky District of St. Petersburg. The hero of the movie lived here, and he used to jog around the wastelot, which today has become a comfortable and nice urban square garden.
80 new coniferous and foliage trees were planted here and about 1 thousand of bushes. The color palette of the plants and the finishing materials remind of the fall season – for example, consider the yellow tiling of the walkways and flower pots shaped as maple leaves.
The clock, the telephone booth, and the typing machine – all these garden elements refer to the movie.
