Aim: To develop a concept of contemporary landscape park next to the Barvikha and Nemchinovka areas taking into account improvement standards for protected natural areas.
Solution: We started working on the park concept with studying the context and searching for the area identity. We found out that this territory is closely related to the name of the famous Russian avant-garde artist Kazimir Malevich who after 1917 often visited the neighbouring village of Nemchinovka and was inspired by the local landscapes. There is even a legend about a “Malevich oak tree”, well-known to the researchers of his creative work. We offered to preserve the memory of this place, hence the idea to call the park after Malevich. This predetermined the image of the area referring to the tradition of Russian suprematism.
