This project is the result of the complex two-year work and is a very important victory: the resident's initiative found its embodiment, turned out to be fully justified, and lived to the fullest. Moreover, this is the first urban object in Russia created according to the project of children - residents!
The neighborhood community created it for themselves together with our bureau from the idea to the implementation of the project.
The main point of this project is the invention and implementation of exactly those formats for the use of space, which were necessary for specific people to create a point of attraction. The square took root and served as a point of application for the creative activity of people. The key to this is an interdisciplinary team that has put together its competencies and provided an integrated approach.
