ODA reveals first images of MAZD master plan to revitalize industrial zones outside moscow

ODA presents its three million square foot MAZD master plan, designed to revitalize a territory of industrial zones outside moscow. a significant number of these post-industrial sites occupy valuable areas around the russian city and directly align with its main transportation routes. the MAZD master plan will be a comprehensive kickoff for the conversion of the industrial ‘magistralnye ulitsy’ territory. covering 9.3 hectares, the territory will prove to affect the further development of the surrounding neighborhood. the team at ODA will generate a meaningful contribution to the development of this urban fabric that will ultimately lay the foundations for a greener destination in this valuable part of the city.

ODA plans the MAZD territory to introduce an innovative, iconic neighborhood along moscow’s multipurpose, green, and pedestrian-centric urban agenda. the new MAZD will update the deployment of public programs along the west sector of the third ring road, close enough to the bustling influence of moscow-city, from which it will become a beacon with its iconic silhouette. the proposed schemes follow moscow’s trends for a dense, mixed and walkable region where architecture and landscape are designed in conjunction. public and recreational spaces interwoven with residences and offices will strengthen the sense of place that the area much needs.

the ODA-designed scheme is in part characterized by an iconic roof that landmarks MAZD within the city skyline. below, residences are strategically organized with courtyards and open sight lines. this introduces a human scale to the territory and creates two complementing typologies — villas encircling quiet patios and towers exposed to the far views. in plan, the scheme is modular and expresses a checkerboard balance between open and enclosed spaces. in elevation, the scheme is topographical with all programs organized beneath a unifying roof. this modular development can adapt to different typologies and expansions of future developmental stages.
