Peter the Great Square in Saratov

Best Landscape Architecture Project

About the project
Authors are positive that today the notion of a memorial as something static and made of stone or metal should be abandoned in favor of some alive growing material like a tree or a plant.
The main thing is to make it represent the reasons of the memorable event. Peter the Great met Khan Ajuka, which became a symbol of European Russia merging with semisavanna. That is why the authors suggest planting an array of semisavanna herbs within an ellipsoid.
They also suggest restoring the illegally demolished listed memorial, the house of Akimov.
