Considerations and corresponding solutions:

Considering factors and existing conditions under the bridge, such as graphic art vandals on wall, noise, unsafe feeling, dead zone area and possible areas for informal settlers, a group of divisional walls applied with graphic arts was provided to control and blend vandals within its environment. It allows and attracts people to have their piece of art be painted in an organized yet appreciative way.


Interaction means Community: the design focuses on the interaction which is a big help for the community to be more lively, functional, and FUN, having also a great space for pedestrians and other wheeled sports such as skateboarding and bicycling.

An Open Art Exhibit was also provided which will showcase the rich culture and history of Yaroslavl, Russia.

Now with these design the present condition not only in under the bridge but also the spaces surrounds it will only be like just a Meditative Emptiness, Series of houses, trees, signs and traffic lights but will be a lively and more interactive because of a FUNCTIONAL PARK design.

A Holistic design translation which involve and interconnects everyone in a void area giving them a flexible, movable, and enjoyable environment.
