    Daniel Dendra is one of the experts for development of Zaryadye

    Similar to the “friends of the high-line” a new group called “friends of zaryadye” formed in Moscow in order to support the development of a new park in the center of Moscow. The site has a long history being close to the Kreml. During the Soviet Union time a huge modernist hotel named “Hotel Russia” was occupying the site. After the demolition of the hotel there was a master planning of Sir Norman Foster and Partners from London to redesign the site. Followed by years as an abandoned site and probably the most prominent advertisement board in Moscow there is now the discussion to give back the site to the people of Moscow.

    During the Moscow Architecture Biennale a group of experts will discuss the potential of the site with the public. Along with other members of FutureCityLab such as Helmut Meyer (Transsolar), Federico Parolotto (Mobility in Chain) and Oliver Schulze (Gehl Architects) anOtherArchitect : Daniel Dendra is part of this experts committee and referencing on the AirPark 2.Zero in Berlin.

    Daniel Dendra jury member of ArchiVisov 2012

    It´s a great pleasure to join in the second year in a row the jury of the renown Russian interior and furniture prize : ArchiVisov.

    You can still hand in your projects fitting the three categories until the 30th of March. The best works will be presented at ArchMoscow (Moscow Architecture Biennale 2012). It´s great to see that many of my Russian architects and designer friends are also in the jury this year: Sergei Tchoban, Totan Kuzembaev, Boris Leviant and Vladimir Kuzmin (who was moderating our OpenJapan event at Strelka last year).

    The prize is by the way sponsored by NAYADA, the company who is also producing the HEDRONIC chair.
