Boulevard "White Flowers", Kazan, Tartastan, The Russia Federation

The information on this project was compiled by students from the University of Geneva as part of the Urban Futures Workshop (full report).

The White Flowers Boulevard is a park instead of a parking lot: the new public space, which has become an alternative neighborhood center, is located on the site of former paid parking lots, where trucks were parked on mounds of construction debris.

The constant conflict between cars and pedestrians posed a danger, as there was no unified and continuous pedestrian route from the houses to public transport stops and the school. Moreover, the parking fields became a kind of exclusionary space - and began to be built up by stores and business centers. The new boulevard is an alternative to parking lots and haphazard development for the benefit of residents.
