Revitalization of the former Nikolsky market and landscaping of the pedestrian route along the Kryukov Canal embankment

Best Design of Public Space by Student

About the project
The project explores two ideas:

  1. A riverfront walkway. The project proposes transforming the embankment into a pedestrian and recreational promenade, thus creating a new tourist route, which will connect some important points of interest.
  2. Revitalization of the area. The project includes the creation of a new urban meeting place adjacent to the promenade, namely a cultural and educational cluster. It will house a centre for inclusive education, a multifunctional children's centre and a students’ centre, an event venue, a food market, as well as functional zones engaging different senses.

Area between Nikolsky Lane, Schepyany Lane, Kryukov Canal and Fontanka River, plus a section of Kryukov Canal Embankment, St. Petersburg, Russia
