Green Channel

2012 – ongoing

Minsk is a 2 million capital of Belarus. The biggest part of it was built after World War II and was quite carefully planned. We have here a river crossing the city center but there was an idea to create a big recreation zone for suburb districts where there were many factories and mainly working class people indwell this area.

The “green channel” – a system of artificial lakes, channels and waterfalls made from concrete cross the city from north to south and form a natural rest zone. This channel was supposed to form a center of communication for people of Minsk. From one hand it is like this at the moment. From another, today these parks being an architectural and natural monument became more a place of solitude and runaway, a place, where everybody tries to hide, to stay a little bit on alone on the nature.
