6 Jul 2021
Location: Sirius, Krasnodar Krai, south western Russia
Architects from across the globe are invited to create the concept of a seafront promenade for an emerging Black Sea urban area
Sirius seafront promenade design competition
Sirius, the first federal territory in Russia, is initiating the competition for an architectural and urban planning concept of its 7,5 kilometre long seafront promenade. The open call for teams and individual candidates from Russia and beyond is launched on the Sirius competition website.
In late September the Jury will shortlist 6 participants for Phase 2, of which four teams will be experienced in similar large-scale projects and two are emerging / early career / not yet established professionals. This way, architects of the next generation will be able to take part in the contest along with acclaimed offices.
The winner and the finalists will be announced in early December 2021. The prize money amount is 26 million rubles.
The candidates will design a concept for a multifunctional urban space for people from all walks of life, from seamen to artists, and envisage an infrastructure for international or national cultural, sportive and educational events – festivals, concerts, exhibitions, and public talks by artists or popular scientists. Softscaping and wind protection solutions are expected to create an all-season environment comfortable for people of every age, from infants to seniors.
The seafront must become an iconic landmark for Sirius – the city of the 2014 Winter Olympics and the Sirius educational center for gifted students from all over Russia. A distinctive skyline with curated panoramic viewpoints and easy access to sea must transform the place into a vibrant world-wide attraction.
The open international competition for the architectural and urban development concept for the embankment for the first federal territory in Russia ‘Sirius’ was organized by VEB.RF and the Center for Urban Studies of the Sirius University of Science and Technology. The winning fund of the competition amounts to 26 million rubles excluding VAT.
Russian and international architects and landscape designers are invited to participate. There is also a quota for young professionals. The aim of the competition is to develop concepts for the embankment which has 7.5 km of coastline between Mzymta and Psou rivers. The results will be announced in December 2021. Strelka KB and ProGorod are key partners of the competition.
