Developing my Astrakhan park renovation competition project I felt so strong desire to express this city specific characteristics. I lived in Astrakhan for 23 years and I’ve learnt it from inside out. Especialy when I saw the competition task where all russian cities were aligned like they were new and empty. But Astrakhan has it’s wealth, problems and joy what make it unique! I feel it I know it and I want to attract others to it’s intimate beauty. That’s how this collage appeared.
