Zaha Hadid Architects unveils design for new planned ‘smart city’ near Moscow

            <img src="" border="0" /><a href="" >Moscow</a>'s population has been exploding in recent decades&mdash;growing by more than 30% to currently 12.4 million in the past 20 years&mdash;and space is starting to get tight. To accommodate future growth and welcome new residents without further clogging the city center, officials are planning the new Rublyovo-Arkhangelskoye neighborhood with 4 million square meters of new buildings on a 460-hectare plot, only a few miles west of Moscow.&nbsp;
An invited architectural competition asked three consortiums to submit proposals that include new homes for 66,500 residents paired with state-of-the-art 'smart city' infrastructure, educational and medical facilities, shopping and entertainment districts as well as new civic and cultural institutions.  The invited consortiums are Zaha Hadid Architects (UK) in collaboration with TPO Pride Architects (Russia); Nikken Sekkei (Japan) with UNK Project (Russia); and Archea Associati (Italy) with ABD Architects (Russia).
