Kazanka River embankments

Best Implemented Landscape Architecture Project

About the project
The dam in Kazan has become a full-featured central embankment that connects the Kremlin, the State Library, and the Uram extreme sports park.
There are green spots with leisure sites and the panoramic green amphitheater with a wooden ramp for kick scooter and bicycle riding.
The River Gates audio installation, telling a story of the river, restored historic connections between the city and the river. The premises embrace sports grounds for playing football, beach volleyball and petanque. The embankment will be further developed in both directions to establish new public premises.
