The pool "Luzhniki" is being reconstructed according to the project of UNK project
The architectural bureau UNK project became the winner of competition on development of the volume and spacing of the project of reconstruction of the pool "Luzhniki" organized by JSC Olimpiysky complex Luzhniki.
The new project of the pool "Luzhniki" with a total area of 42 thousand sq m is considered in a context of the concept of reconstruction of the Olympic Luzhniki complex, and the concept of the reconstructed building is executed in architectural traditions of the 50 s of the 20th century.
"We started working with big enthusiasm because we are down on to this place, Yuliy Borisov, the chief architect, the cofounder of UNK project makes comments on results of competition. - Our office is situated here, this is where I grew up and I live, therefore the victory in this competition has the special importance for all company and for me in particular". "Luzhniki" is a special atmosphere, a town-planning complex in which it is necessary to work very accurately. We chose the way of not creating of a new accent in Luzhniki but the sensitive relation to environment. It is attempt to doom a new modern architecture in a historical context. All objects of the Olympic Luzhniki complex are executed in uniform architectural style and are characteristic symbolic objects of Moscow of the 1950s. Therefore one of the main tasks of reconstruction is preservation of characteristic shape of both all sports complex and its separate parts one of which is an open swimming pool "Luzhniki".
