Mixed-Use for Volgograd

Volgograd, Russia (formerly Stalingrad) is getting a new mixed-use city center, designed with the idea of "shopping as museum and exhibition space".

"Designed by Oncuoglu Architecture the planned Volgopark Centre in southern Volgograd, Russia, originates from the need to integrate the city with the surrounding nature. The project is designed as a building complex around a 'Promenade' which forms the spine of the project. Making the most of the natural surroundings the development is situated at the intersection of Volga River and Volgo-Don Canal and the master plan is developed by planning different functions and elements along a continuous axis as a promenade.

A balanced design of building, landscape and water is intended to create a new identity for the city. Being located at the Krasnoarmayskiy District at the south of Volgograd, the project is intended to become the new public space and attraction center for the residents of Volgograd."
