Project tittle / Motto: Al mig del jardí (In the middle of the Garden)

The project is intended to re-naturalize an almost fully built and unstructured courtyard space and at the same time create a new green space for the neighborhood( "The Garden" ). The new Sports Building (GF swimming pool + upper level sports court) is conceived as one more element of The Garden, integrating a lively green facade, as if the garden flooring merges with the vertical enclosure of the new building. In order to minimize its environmental impact, the building introduces a series of passive strategies and renewable energies, aiming towards a zero net energy building (ZNE).

3X1: Revitalization of a currently unattractive space that has turned obsolete due to regulations changes .We propose a series of strategies which focus on the use of space and on programmatic diversification.The project is located in the historic center of Yaroslavl (Russia) - UNESCO World Heritage Site, a city with more than 1000 years since its foundation and which is part of the Golden Ring of Russian historic cities. A proposal which integrate human connections with the building itself and the surrounding context while at the same time gives a new space which foresees the coming future demands. An architectural solution that incorporates in its design the site’s DNA and the surrounding elements(History, water and nature).All this within a sustainable and respectful approach to the site’s heritage and history. We will transform the existing stadium into a new indoor exhibition space and a Cultural Hub. A “Flexible” space taken to another level, not only because the internal building layout / distribution can be changed at any given time, but due to the fact that the building itself has 3 main objectives: to be a container for Culture (Museums-exhibitions-festivals), to become a Memorial site in Summer surrounded by nature in remembrance of the Lokomotiv Yaroslavl airplane crash victims and, during Winter, to transform itself into an Ice skating rink for the people( keep the public space). The Ground Floor level layout is planned to be an exhibition-demostration continuous space, which can be subdivided in order to held different uses such as exhibitions, festivals, museums or congresses. This will be an extraordinary space to held the Museum of local lore (MLL), the new Yaroslavl Museum of Modern art (YMMA) and the Museum of history of the city (MH).The Rooftop level will be accessible via a series of ramps ,stairs and bridges and it includes a water mirror which integrates each of the names of the airplane crash victims inside the water. We provide a sustainable design not only because of its ecological design characteristics, but because its programmatic multifunctionality in the same plot, a 3X1
