The Festival of social architecture «Social revolution» announces the international competition «PARK’ing»: for making up the design of the urban ecological object.
Modern city in the magnitude of it’s tasks usually forgets about the human and his essential need in privacy and comfort, his desire of harmony.
We compete with cars, highways, shopping centers, with each other to find our area for the rest, for a place to «park.»
The task of the competition is to create these «parks» (‘PARK’ing’ places)- the urban objects for communication of citizens (families, youth, integration of different social and age groups).
Contestants have the unique opportunity to have a public dialogue with the historical heritage of the 1000 years old Yaroslavl, to construct a bright and functional object and to express in it the unique artistic credo of an author.
