The subject of the research is a mix-used development, located on Serebryanicheskaya quay of Yauza River in Moscow. The complex includes a hotel, business center, fitness center with swimming pool and building for children care. The goal was to create dynamic and comfortable living environment, well accessible for pedestrians, adjust the object into the existing architectural environment, not "citing" it, but introducing a new, thereby enriching it. The main idea of the complex is close to the "coliving" concept, providing accessible temporary residence space for people of different ages and marital status with the opportunity to fully work and rest.

At the moment dyeing and finishing establishment are placed on the given 0,8 ha sector, whose removal is planned in ArtDistrict project. Apart from the establishment, one-two-story buildings are located on the constructing area. Inefficient use of the territory has led to the fact that now the neighborhood "lives" only during working hours of located here offices, shops, etc. In the evening and at night, the place is getting empty, creating a spatial gap both in the panorama of the embankment and in the structure of ArtHouse and the city. The design project consists of 62% of the residential uses to solve this problem.

PLAN

PROBLEM Moscow is several times more densely built-up city than other cities in the world. At the same time, the number of roads and their area is several times less than in other cities. Most offices and commercial areas are concentrated in the center of Moscow, while most of the residential housing areas are located on the outskirts of the city. In the central area of Moscow, the high cost per square meter of housing

contributed to the design of residential buildings of the "club" type, which are closed for the life of the city - "ghosts neighborhoods" with deserted streets. Therefore, the construction of affordable housing for long-term temporary residence with the opportunity to work, rest and be close to children without spending much time reaching home is quite an urgent problem.

Description of the project: Located in the north-west of Moscow, the site of this residential district is divided into two parts by Lihoborka river. There is vast park zone in district's territory. The decision was determined by the presence of the park zone and proximity to the river. That influenced to volumetric-spatial analysis. Building heights are reducing to the river, to make sure it is visible from other buildings. In addition to height, buildings are more slender and dispose apart. The district mainly is built with city blocks. Consumer services and cultural service institutions are located on ground floors of residential buildings. There is office block on district's area. The social center is located near park zone and the main road.

This study project is aiming to approach the complexity and the interrelations of the different components that a city contains or that should be taken into consideration for a sustainable and holistic planning proposal. The goal is not to provide a unique solution for the city of Wurer but to highlight the potentials and the limitations that experts of different fields have to face from the phase of planning and design to this of maturity and further growth.

In contrast, this project aims to concentrate on how the distribution of the necessary utilities predominantly water - can shape the form of the city. The goal is to show the possibilities and the complications of such an approach, but also to highlight the importance these utilities can have for the diversity of urban qualities that define the attractiveness of the city to persons with different needs and expectations.

While every proposal should take into account both the reproductive and productive activities in the framework of a city, Wurer offers a challenge, as its current situation could be described as rural. Any plan of further economic development should be based on cohesive regional planning, where the complexity of small cities of the region will offer complementary and not competitive economic activities, and further examination is required for this purpose.

WATER AS A DRIVING FORCE FOR DEVELOPMENT As water is of absolute necessity for the majority of the inhabitants of the area, its provision could use as the initial factor to attract population. The efficient and sustainable use of water could function as the driving force for the development of the population and the economy of the city and consequently of the physical form of the city.

SCENARIOS CONCEPT 1

SCENARIO 1: DENSE NETWORK TAPS: Community taps function as local centers attracting density. VARIETY: The overlapping of the serving areas brings a variety of different urban qualities, which could attract different activities and cover different needs.

SCENARIO 2: SPREAD NETWORK WALKABILITY: The water walkability distance is considered to maximum 400 meters. CENTERS: More than one center even though one of them is the most prominent. LAND USE: Facilities and land uses around the city were set according to multiple segments in the benchmarking model.

CONCEPT 3

SCENARIO 3: EXTENDED NETWORK (further growth) POTENTIAL: The potential growth of the city, if it followed the 2nd scenario. SETTLEMENTS: How the existing settlements might be affected and strengthened by the city. OUTCOME: The new city will attract agriculture-related industry and more workshops.

Conference: 9th Urban Space and Social Life Development and Heritage: Present, Past, and Future

The fast-paced mass scale planning and its topdown implementation is a pertinent question when it comes to the resilience of the cities. The acute urban growth situation in the developing cities of China faces the problem of a refusal of cultural diversity, postulates the cultural dispossession of minority communities. Next, to the challenges of integration, inequality, and discrimination, the new diversity can be a significant resource for the cities - economics, quality of life, creativity. The mass-scale ÂŤredrawingÂť of the city changes not only an urban shell, with revisions in the environment and habitual lifestyle, but it can

also lead to the blurring of existing communities, which embody centuries-old traditions. The local lifestyle, the convenient shop around the corner, the guy who brings your newspaper, all that are the heritage of a locality are under threat. The acknowledgment of these local quirks and practices by bringing them forward by affirmations made in planning can help them from disappearing. Here the locality is taken as a unit where its stakeholders: the planners, the neighborhood association and the local governance partakes in a conversation to protect and facilitate the identified milieu that is in danger of dying out.

The program for concert hall includes an auditorium for 1700 person, lecture room, event space, cafe, artists and practical rooms. Expanded into a 110-meter long building is divided into three different parts to create human-scale proportions. Each of the three buildings’ parts is developed uniquely. The small lecture building which leaning on sturdy

steel construction faces the carriageway. The main center part includes a grand auditorium which could hold 1700 people. The multi-facetted transparent facade is developed according to the idea of a «theatre is not a mirror, but a big magnifying glass.» Passers-by could observe visitors in waiting for performance, capturing their eye by reflecting city and sunlight with each panel. Thus, the function of the theatre embodies in the crystalline facade.
