Design challenge:

Located on the left bank of the Zay River in Tatarstan, Almetyevsk has a population of approximately 150,000 inhabitants. As a major oil processing center, pipelines from there stretch to the south, west, and northern areas of Russia.

The competition seeks to generate a masterplan for the territory adjacent to the Almetyevsk reservoir on the Zay River. The competition is of particular importance as one of the most remarkable projects, aimed at the rehabilitation of compromised land areas and the preservation of valuable natural resources caused by production work when creating and locating infrastructure facilities. At the end of the competition, the results of environmental rehabilitation from man-made impact can be applied on similar sites both in Russia and all over the world.
