Alternative landscape design for Post-soviet Microrayon
The space between buildings has been the unique representation and value of the microrayon. Large scale courtyard, grassland, and trails in between creates the feeling of emptiness and ambiguity. But the integrity and quality of these space have been challenged by both the new condition of ownership and the new idea of public space which only emphasizes on the human scale and density.
The microrayon needs a unique answer of how the space between buildings should be today. This project provides an alternative landscape for the courtyard. The design follows the theme of emptiness, trying to elaborate the aesthetic and poetic value of it while providing the space and facility for daily use.
