Best Project of Public Space by Student
About the project
A square garden at the memorial house of Alexander Chizhevsky, who studied various aspects of life – not only exact sciences, but art, too.
The first thing visitors see at the entrance is a kind of a fence, and they are invited to explore it, to learn more not only about this awkward mechanism, but about the scientist himself and the things awaiting them in his memorial house, too. When they finally manage to get in, they get to a new space to study.
The square garden with a stage can be used to hold lectures, film shows, and asphalt astronomy, as well as all kinds of presentations, games, and plain get-togethers after dark.
