Studio Egret West
Moscow makes plans for Orbit Park to take the place of an old unused airfield. The beautifully designed park is also the setting for 'The Orbit' which is the Russian National Aviation and Space Museum.
Studio Egret West have designed a masterplan for the transformation of Khodynka Field (Khodynskoe Pole Airfield), Moscow’s oldest airport which closed in the 1990′s. Now a large and under utilised open space, OAO “Aviapark” (a subsidiary of the City of Moscow) have appointed Studio Egret West to prepare a mixed used framework for its future.
Orbit Park will be Moscow’s largest new park in 80 years. A landscape of play, of rest, of sport and of education, the park is the setting for the ‘The Orbit’ (The Russian National Aviation & Space Museum). At once global and local, Orbit Park will connect an animated strip of ‘Runway Buildings’ including The Orbit with the surrounding communities.
