Dynamo Moscow / Perkins Eastman

Dynamo Moscow

Moscow, Russia
Perkins Eastman was invited by the City of Moscow to participate in a paid competition for the design of a new sports, entertainment, and commercial complex in the heart of Moscow. The firm led an international design team that included ABD Architects in Moscow, sports specialist IBI/Young and Wright of Toronto as, and engineer ARUP Sport in Moscow.

The project incorporates the historic 1928 Dynamo Stadium, a Russian monument built in the Constructivist style, into the design of a new FIFA/UEFA 40,000-seat stadium and 10,000-seat hockey arena. The complex also includes a 24,000 sm (258,333 sf) retail and entertainment mall, a sports museum, a 1.5-hectare (four-acre) public "Sports Plaza," food vendors, restaurants, parking, amenities, and a public park.

Located adjacent to the new Petrovsky Park Commercial Development and to the north of Leningradsky Prospect, a major city thoroughfare, the new Dynamo Complex was conceived as a vibrant and attractive destination that will be a significant, long-term asset by stimulating growth and revenue to the area. Our design integrates the stadium site with the surrounding neighborhoods by enhancing connectivity, pedestrian walkability, and 24-hour safety for both visitors and area residents. A green-roof passage above the retail and parking provides a seamless transition from the new high and mid-rise development to the existing park below while also offering additional recreational space for all of Moscow to enjoy.
