The new naturists: cities go greener

The regeneration of New York’s Highline seems to have kickstarted a renaissance in urban greening; cities all over the world are looking to open up formerly vacant, underused land into green public space for the benefit of their citizens.

Zaryadye Park in Moscow was designed by American practice Diller Scofidio + Renfro in collaboration with Hargreaves Associates and Citymakers. It occupies the former site of Europe’s largest hotel, demolished in 2007, on the banks of the Moskva River. Providing an informal counterweight to the monumentality of the adjacent Red Square and the Kremlin, the park celebrates Russia’s four famous natural landscapes – tundra, steppe, wetlands and forests – while providing a number of integrated urban facilities and a dramatic, V-shaped path suspended out over the river.
