An architectural and landscape transformation of a former industrial site in Donetsk , an important industrial centre for coal and steel in Ukraine. The first phase of the project will deliver an experimental Arts centre using a former vehicular depot. The newly converted
building will be  integrated into a outdoor gallery and performance space using railway goods wagons on a relayed track as art display spaces.
In subsequent phases a new circular park will be delivered turning the prominent centrally placed 45m high slag  heap (the Terrikon)into an exciting outdoor arts and recreational space. The new landscape setting will create a sense of definition, boundary and neighbourhood connection. The new bio-diverse landscape will be people centered in its design in contrast to the current defining landscape of Donetsk, which was based on Soviet style mass greening.
The main aim of this ambitious project is to create a hub of cultural excellence as well as deliver a social, economic and ecological transformation of a post industrial landscape. The phased transformation will reclaim much of the grey and abandoned site and make it 'green', both literally in an environmental sense and metaphorically as place of new growth and positive change.
