Ecopolis “Two forests”One of the main project ideas is the infiltration of green fingers in the future eco-district. The concept involves the formation of active clusters with dense buildings, where life will be in full swing, a “clearing” with less dense buildings, and local public spaces with playgrounds and meeting places. There will be clusters, and groups of clearings, and the “fingers” are united by a long park in the region and a large green ring. The park threads sub-centers on itself at the intersection with the roads, where children’s, sports and event zones and cafes will be located, as well as a square with the main cultural center. Thus, the three elements are active clusters, the green ring and the park of the district and form the basis for the successful development of the eco-district. They protect the existing ecosystem, biodiversity and high quality of the environment.download concept
