Dmitry Izokh: “The national grove“ is the first small step on the way of basic change of an image of Cherepovets“

the Question:

- What types of small architectural forms you would offer “A national grove“ as obligatory. And why?

Dmitry Izokh
- For a start it is important that there was in prosperity of the most elementary elements of park architecture: benches, ballot boxes, lamps high and low (for pedestrians). And the imagination &ndash scope is farther; if we do that by the London Gaydpark`s example the scene for the statement of the political reasons is necessary and if by an example of modern Chinese zones of gardening, then there are a lot of sports exercise machines for keeping fit of residents of close lying area.

Question:
- How you consider, Cherepovets “is rather sated“ with small architectural objects?

Dmitry Izokh
- Small forms can be much because our life becomes more and more many-sided over time and an increasing number of architectural elements with new technological contents is required.

Question:
- Here is some trend the general. Here, that was evident (for example, goes powerful “ creative “ on benches, on ballot boxes, pavilions, on bridges)?

Dmitry Izokh
- Something lately slipped only 2 projects which were evident, it is Vereshchagin`s square and night illumination of the city, for the rest small forms in the city in a complex somehow do not appear

- Here all speak about bus pavilions, ballot boxes, benches. The mayor even on this subject started discussion))

Dmitry Izokh
- Well, the truth missed bus-stops, in the city really want to create uniform style of bus-stops now, it is plus!

Jeje To
- In our remarkable city there is no sense to put small architectural forms, for the reason, that the culture of Cherepovets and its inhabitants meanwhile did not grow to something beautiful and functional in one person. People too lacking culture and understand a little why such things are necessary. For a start, it is necessary to change culture of the attitude towards objects which are built in the city. Therefore all such poor since it is necessary to do all ANTI-VANDAL as much as possible. very offensively, if honestly.

Dmitry Izokh
- I think that what people would not live here, except bad people not so poorly good... And if in some place the communities respecting and appreciating a cosiness and an esthetics are created, then they will watch and look after after Wednesday and then to vandals it will be necessary or to go to other place or to join.

Question:
. What small architectural forms catastrophically are not enough for Cherepovets and what are presented much.

Dmitry Izokh
- Is only available for us much BIGBORDY and foolish absolutely not large-scale TVs distracting drivers from the road we just do not have all the rest, in Komsomol park it is simple to sit down there is no place...

Question:
- What negative and positive architectural trends were outlined in the image of Cherepovets?

Dmitry Izokh
- In Cherepovets, the administration headed for complex development of the territory it is plus! But experience of the European countries shows what cannot be forgotten about already existing areas. The streets spoiled by the Soviet standardized buildings are in great need in change of an image. I consider that we have to break small squares, flower beds and vacation spots of citizens there where already nothing can be constructed. On places of small waste grounds, in places of not used transport ways, in interdomestic territories etc. of

Igor Vasyukov
- Experience shows that many feel terrible nostalgia just on the Soviet standard boxes. These are already legends...

Dmitry Izokh
- I also do not suggest to bear them, I offer only instead of gates a boundary these boxes it is pleasant to make the lit squares
to me by

of Jeje To
- the Problem consists that need of the device for the city of Cherepovets of a large number “ green islands “ it is necessary. But who will agree to take the responsibility from the government and to invest maintenance of a good shape of such objects. Everyone tries to find benefit. First question of the investor: “ And what in it object will bring in me the income? “

Dmitry Izokh
- I agree with Jeje To from the power it is necessary to wait for 100% of implementation of the project hardly. I think better to rely on business. Give preferential terms on construction of shoddy constructions with a condition of care of the adjacent territory and people will stretch, there will be many persons interested to open fitness - halls in residential quarters, offices for repetitorstvo... the main thing zero or at least preferential rent and people will find that to open in such places...

Question:
- By results of polls, the majority want that the National grove settled down near the estate Gallic?

Dmitry Izokh
- This desire is quite logical! Today in the city there was a dissonance in perception of city fabric. We as - as if live in one city (ZShK) and we go through the wood and the river for work to other city (The industrial area), the estate in general completely dropped out of a city context. It costs at some distance as the ghost of former times. Citizens love and are proud of the history and therefore want to return it to the everyday life. The park at Galsky` estate would connect Industrial and Zasheksninsky districts but also would enter harmony between modern architectural styles of the supermarkets and motor shows standing on Oktyabrsky Ave. and a classical empire style of the estate of Galsky.

Question:

- Dmitry, you introduced 2 drafts of park on the waste ground at Oktyabrsky Bridge and Galsky` estate. All this is interesting, but as all this can be connected with “ National grove “?!

Dmitry Izokh
- These projects reflected interests of commercial investors and are samples of what could be only. In Paris (the example is higher) park small forms gave for development to small business that brought great success to park.
Ya I think that if we consider interests of businessmen, then we will be able to get their support!
Everywhere practices model in which the businessman the person interested to be realized on any place undertakes obligations to arrange well it and to keep order.

Questions:
- What types of business can be opened in the National grove (attached, probably, to architectural small forms) where there is no Sheksna. For example, in the depth of the Northern area (where a dispensary) or in ZShK, where now waste grounds?

Dmitry Izokh
- It is possible to make small pavilions for sports activities, trays for Kok`s sale - Cola and hot dogs as in Tsentral - park in New - York, it is possible to fill in a skating rink in the winter and to put rental center of skates as it is done in Vologda. The same idea with buns and a paintball is possible. I consider that it is necessary to address youth and to allow them to turn on favorable terms in this park the hobby into business!

Question: - And it is possible to tie all this to some concrete object. You have 10 options of placement « there; HP “. Here some one to choose, the most favourite and to describe it “ in the small architectural » forms;.

Dmitry Izokh
- Of course it is possible, I think that we have to give an example to our fellow citizens and take the initiative, make the project of the territory, feasible for the city, and expose it for consideration. I and architects who work with me, can accept wishes of residents of Cherepovets, and so far the project will be at us in work, to bring all wishes and changes.

Question: - And if is even more concrete. Here in the Northern area, at a dispensary the National grove lands. It should be sated with elements in the form of small architectural forms. What there can be, on yours Dmitry to opinion. Here so that in general. Looked and fell!

Dmitry Izokh
- I suggest to take such site on which really to make something, that is the site which is belonging to the city and having purpose of a recreational zone. Let`s send on behalf of citizens a request in management of architecture with a request to provide for design of the National grove such site in one of 10 areas specified on the card.

- Give! But recommended to us to begin Cousins “ city gain “ from the « program; Pure city “?

Dmitry Izokh
- Let`s follow advice of the mayor and we will try to contact organizers of this movement

of Yuli Korolev
When was in Germany in one of parks (and Cologne - very green city), it was pleasant to me that there were little tables for table tennis... Such of concrete that nobody dug out them :) And in Berlin directly in park observed an unusual exhibition from stones - cobble-stones... Each stone represented something - for example “ love “ “ hope “ etc. A strange, but interesting exhibition, there on each stone still something was written in different languages...

Yulia, and these concrete tables had a covering for tennis?
is pleasant to me Yuli Korolev`s

it would be healthy, to organize some exhibitions in our future Grove... Or in the summer - on the street, or in the winter - indoors, and also to have an opportunity to arrange sports competitions...

Dmitry Izokh
is very good idea, we can find a heap of interesting things which naturally dropped out of our life in the city and to make the museum “ the forgotten things “ under the open sky, especially if at us it turns out to transform these old things to something new. Concrete tables for tennis can not have any additional covering at all, concrete very solid material and from - for the density will provide an excellent rebound of a ball!

- In respect of architecture? Grandmother`s dresser? And how our frosts, rains, snow?

Dmitry Izokh
- Grandmother`s dresser! :) It is pleasant to me, present we brought such in park, filled in it with pitch or a molding stone and engraved a chessboard on its cover;) Well, than it to you not arkh - installation?! On it then though play chess though put a live sculpture;)

Yulia Koroleva
A still... Our people surprising. They sometimes are able to zagazhivat where live... For example, in Harovsk by day of Governors in the remote place made a playground of various wooden figures, a swing etc. As a result, through a floor - years, all this creative work was befouled, painted with obscene expressions... How to avoid vandals?

The Internet - conference of the architect Dmitry Izokha
of Yuli, “ HP “ is under construction on the special attitude of people towards them. It not something others, but the which it is necessary to watch, carefully to preserve. It is supposed that there will be a lot of such people. And will see to the, and to next. It, as if, socially - the psychological line of protection.

Dmitry Izokh
Vandalism is the real problem of our society and we have to fight against it! Really the most reliable way - it is supervision, but it is better to bring up our society and to create an environment which does not want to be spoiled.

The Internet - conference of the architect Dmitry Izokha
- Dmitry, in one of the performances you spoke about the « model; National grove “ which constantly develops, replenished with new objects. How it can look specifically?!

Dmitry Izokh
- Now we develop one such model for the central part of the city and I think, shortly it can be seen in management of architecture.

Question:
- And what in the world now in fashion small architectural forms about which we do not know? And it would be interesting and to have at itself!
is pleasant to me

Dmitry Zhavoronkov
the best MAFY - those which the city will think up itself and which more will not be anywhere. What can be fashion here? :)

the Internet - conference of the architect Dmitry Izokha
- Dmitry, and whether will think up? Mass “ exhalation “ logos showed that could not compete with world creative producers even close. To look at the most interesting, advanced, ultrafashionable it is important that, at least. mentally to make a start from it!

Dmitry Zhavoronkov
- It is important that Wednesday inspired to think out. Provided that I believe will think up :) Logo in my opinion piece more difficult and responsible, than MAF. It is possible to experiment with Mafami :)

the Internet - conference of the architect Dmitry Izokha
Dmitry, ok

Dmitry Izokh
- The logo or not, it not the most important Is good, trees I think from prettiness of a logo will not begin grow in a grove better, I consider the main thing that the logo has to be intuitively clear to people, has to reflect sense. And about prettiness designers, after all will work as Dmitry Zhavoronkov &ndash told; business this difficult.

Igor Vasyukov
As I will look, Dmitry, you see “ National grove “ as very ambitious (at least, in respect of creativity) the project. Inhabitants think of simpler categories. Whether there is no contradiction here? And how to overcome it?

Dmitry Izokh
- National grove - the project interesting from the architectural point of view as it is the first small step on the way of basic change of an image of Cherepovets. And if we are able to take this step, then we will give a good example for other design teams working with master plans of Cherepovets.

The Internet - conference of the architect Dmitry Izokha
- Dmitry, and whether you have in a professional portfolio some MAFY which are already realized in practice? Maybe apply a photo?) )

Dmitry Izokh
- Yes, we had one similar joint project businessmen of the Vologda region and administration of Vologda and area. It is an exhibition of low housing construction “ Vologda Settlement “. According to my drawings the first part of an exhibition in which the museums showrooms and administration premises were placed was realized. Then in 2010 we turned absolutely thrown site in Vologda into interesting space where regional events were held and in usual days people walked.
