The coherence of this project is obvious in the presented drawings. The quality of the design appears in the proposed volumes, textures and construction methods. There is intelligence and study in the way to transform a “dead” urban area, in a very attractive and alive one. The use of the Lunawood’s digital design tools, is of obvious quality. Lunawood Thermowood is used in a real, efficient and coherent way.
Airat Zaidullin, Russia / Sail
The expansion of the water-power plant took away the riverbank in Airat Zadullin’s’s hometown in Kazan, Russia. The area which was supposed to become a part of the new dam is now abandoned and empty, although it has a great potential due to its unique landscape. Airat Zadullin proposes using the remaining constructive elements as a base for a public space, including a cafe, workshop and lecture areas, observation decks and a yacht-club. Aimed to bring local society together as well as it reconnects nature with urban life. With the help of a wooden platform on the same level as the existing promenade, this part of the bank will be easily accessed.
