Gillespies led design team secure Park Russia competition win
A UK based design team led by Gillespies, and incorporating Cushman & Wakefield, Fielden Clegg Bradley Studios, Buro Happold and Rider Levett Bucknall, have been named as the winning consortium in a competition to develop a new public park in Moscow, Russia.

The Park Russia design contest was organised by the Russia Geographic Society and Moscow government to devise a master plan for a 1,000 hectare site near the city’s Domodedovo Airport.

It stipulates a 12 year investment plan for the site to transform it into a resort destination attracting both day and long stay visitors via its direct rail access to the airport and city centre.

Jim Diggle, partner at Gillespies, said: “Park Russia features an inspiring and compelling design vision captured in a robust Masterplan framework. It has been designed to be delivered flexibly over many years. It will be an unforgettable destination based on multiple and complimentary attractions, offering layers of interest with fun and learning experiences for all.”

The win follows a prior collaboration between Gillespies and Buro Happold on the Russian capitals ‘Federal City’ master plan.
