A graduate of the Institute of Architecture and Construction at ISTU, Antonina Belorus, is the winners of the program implemented by the Government of Moscow. In the framework of the selection, each contestant had to submit a project to change and transform Moscow into any field: social, economic, construction, etc., to present and defend his project. According to the organizers, more than a thousand applications were received, in the end fifty were rest after the interview, tests, brainstorms and other obstacles. The best students and postgraduate students as interns will work in different departments and governing bodies of Moscow for a year. At the same time, the wage of assistants will be 25 thousand rubles.
Interns choose three or four departments, where they will hold approximately the same time. A. Belarus will work in the Committee on Architecture and Urban Planning, Department of Housing and Public Works and the Department of Culture. Her work has become one of the brightest and was separately represented at the Institute for Media, Architecture and Design "Strelka".
A.Belarus prepared a project to develop a program of improvement of urban areas aimed at the transformation of Moscow into an accessible city for walking («Walkable city»). According to the estimates of the young professional, the project will require six months for its implementation.
A Belarus proposes to build overhead pedestrian crossing, equipped with lifting platforms for sedentary populations over the railroad tracks that divide the areas Marfino and Butyrskiy.
"My project is "Moscow - walkable city». The city in which anyone can reach any point; it should be comfortable, safe and with enjoyable view weather a pedestrian go on foot, on a bicycle, rollerblading or with a sidecar. I chose one piece for my internship: a pedestrian crossing over the railway between areas Marfino and Butyrskiy, or rather, lack of it. People cross the railroad tracks on the count ties that are very dangerous, there is always someone who dies. Government attempted to close the passage: for example, to close up the hole in the fence through which people arrive at the railway line, but it is the only way for the residents of Marfino to get to the metro station "Timirjazevskaya." It turns out that each district is separated, they have no connection. I propose to build a pedestrian bridge - a long, flat, with a gradual ascent and descent, that can be crossed by any person, regardless of his/her physical abilities. I would like to implement this project during my internship, " says A. Belorus.
