Ussuriysk masterplan

“Creating the master plan for Ussuriysk, we focused on four key projects: the School, the Neighborhood and Youth Centers, and the Expocentre. Despite their varying functions and scales, each aims to serve as a new focal point for the city, enhancing its overall environment.

The Expocenter stands as the largest structure, inspired by the theme of agrarian industry. Comprising multiple volumes ranging from 9 to 12 meters in height, it boasts a translucent roof, evoking the ambiance of illuminated “”greenhouses.”” The plastic facades adorned with ledges form verdant balconies akin to floating gardens.

On Vygonnaya Street, the school project was envisioned as an open space seamlessly integrated into Ussuriysk’s daily life. Beyond school hours, the facilities, including sports grounds and green spaces, will be accessible to the community. Leveraging the site’s propensity for flooding, we created a rainforest, water bodies, and an agrarian park as nods to the city’s agricultural heritage.

The Youth Center serves as a magnet for the city’s youth, catalyzing development in the adjacent park area, currently underutilized. Designed with depth in mind, the complex is divided into five permeable blocks, inviting exploration. It will offer a safe haven for teenagers, fostering socialization and leisure activities.

Lastly, the Neighborhood Center on Lenin Street comprises a single four-storey volume designed around the concept of a covered, all-weather forum—a welcoming atrium. Here, a range of amenities, including a multifunctional hall, a library with co-working spaces, workshops, and entrepreneurial support centers, are housed. Surrounding the center, sports and cultural activities abound, while a community garden and a street bandstand offer spaces for quiet relaxation and lively events alike.”
