The Skolkovo Moscow district initiative tackles an array of themes that refer to both the past and, above all, the future of urban planning: how to design a new urban environment, how to create a city entirely dedicated to top quality education, training and scientific research, how to transform the image of a future city into a laboratory for innovation and a worldwide model and point of  reference for urban sustainability.
An initial competition phase selected the Masterplan designed by AREP: a project that foresees the development of districts with a strong and singular identity. Added to a series of programmatically characterized areas (the central district by Kazujo Sejima, a guest zone by OMA, a technopark designed by Valode & Pistre and the university campus by Herzog & De Meuron) are two mixed-use zones, one om the east side and one on the west, that include residential functions for 27,000 inhabitants, civic services, shopping areas, office spaces and business facilities that will be created after the initial start up of the techno-park. The eastward zone was jointly commissioned to Stefano Boeri Architetti and the Moscow-based studio Project Meganom.
