Area of project: 5 hectares
Moscow region, 2015
1. Development of the reconstruction project of the territory allotted for the establishment of a literary museum dedicated to the works of Russian Symbolist poets.
2. Development of recommendations on optimization of investments in the reconstruction of the territory.
The Symbolists relied on some characters base, expressing there attitude to reality and their views. Symbolism in literature is akin to the eclectic art, but every poet used his own cliches, references or forms. The design of the garden is based on the strength of the dominant ideology in art - symbolist poets ideas whose names are connected with the history of the place, not from the principles of park construction. To date there are no scientific works on arrangement of estates territories (18-19 centuries), describing the planning principles and the evolution of the style of this period in the gardening art. First of all the garden should be practical and convenient.
A planning of the territory, symbolizing the clock of the history, with a radial avenues system was offered. The avenues symbolize different periods in the history of the manor. Also the planning includes a system of functional areas and green spaces, that are also symbolically linked to key events in the estate’s history.
Exterior spaces are closely linked thematically with views opening from the windows of the museum and continue the composition, provided inside.
Stereotypes in literature, artful mazes of poets’ thoughts are symbolically structured, stylized and represented as «green labyrinths», etc.
References to the work of the Symbolist poets considered in the selection of gardening equipment and art objects.
A planning concept «museum in museum» was offered.
There was projected the infomap for visitors pastime planning.
An infrastructure to attract additional investment attracting for maintenance of the territory of the Museum-Estate was offered.
