Flower Jam festival: Where to see the gardens by landscape design contest finalists

Gardens with thujas, lindens and sunflowers will be created in central Moscow.

The city has started installing three exhibition gardens – winners in the Great Exhibition Garden category of the Flower Jam Open International Competition of Urban Landscape Design. The gardens will be created in Slavyanskaya Square, Klimentovsky Pereulok and Myasnitskiye Vorota Square.

In Klimentovsky Pereulok, visitors will be able to see The Communications garden by Marina Boiko. The landscape designer believes the big city to be an attractive place of great opportunities, where many are striving to move. Everyone has their own inner world, which is symbolised by gazebo domes that are different from each other in the way people are different from each other. Pavilions give rise to "rivers" of flowers, which stand for different paths of those who live in big cities. This modern garden surrounded by old Moscow buildings will also become a symbol of the connection between the past and the present.

Those who come to Myasnitskiye Vorota Square and climb into the “garden train” called “Let’s Go!” by Vitaly Panteleyev and Anastasia Golovina will be able to relive their childhood memories. Cottonwood poplars, common wormwood and sunflowers will remind visitors of steppes, thujas and roses will bring back memories of southern resorts, while colourful suitcases with sea pebbles will be reminiscent of the sea.

At Slavyanskaya Square, festivalgoers will be treated to bursts of colours. There, designer Olga Androsenko will present her geometrical garden called The City Kaleidoscope. The designer used flowers and plants in a variety of colours. In this garden, visitors will be able to relax on a bench surrounded with lindens and meadow plants, swings or a hammock.

The second Moscow festival of city landscape design, Flower Jam, will run from 30 August to 9 September. Various venues citywide will have gardens and landscape compositions made up of over 4 million live plants. Last year’s festival, Moscow Summer: Flower Jam, attracted 7.2 million people.

The Open International Competition of Urban Landscape Design will be held for the second time as well. In 2017, it took place during the Moscow Summer: Flower Jam festival and became the winner in the 8th Russian National Award for Landscape Architecture’s Event of the Year category.
