Krasnoyarsk is the biggest cultural, economic, industrial and educational center of Central and Eastern Siberia. More than one million people live here. One of the main attractions of the city is the island-park Tatyshev. It is a picturesque part of the city, isolated by the river Yenisey. According to official statistics, during warm seasons about 100,000 people visit the island every week.
There is a well-developed infrastructure in the Park: sports equipment rental centers, lots of cafes, playgrounds for kids of all ages, run tracks, parking lots for more than 10,000 parking places, public toilets, the grounds with street weight machines etc. During winter time the biggest ice-skating rink is open on the island.
There are some standing rules in the Park: you are not allowed to smoke and drink alcohol, dogs must be kept on a leash (dogs are allowed to walk only in special places), and driving cars and riding motorcycles is prohibited. In recent years Tatyshev Park has become a kind of a brand of the city, connected with the ideas of healthy lifestyle, focus on ecology and realization of big ideas and initiatives. The Park has become the center of family and active recreations of the city.
The main task of contestants is to work out the project of an ice city (winter amusement park), situated on one of the central sites of Tatyshev island. The project should correspond to the needs of the target audience, visiting the island: families, young people, and pensioners.
Due to climatic characteristics of the region, while developing the project (namely, infrastructure facilities) it is preferable to take into account the possibility of using ice and snow. Winter temperatures are usually below -15 C , and subzero temperatures last altogether 5-6 months of the year. The snow part of the Park can add spice to the project and attract more people during winter time. The part of the construction made of snow and ice can be rebuilt annually, its interiors can be reformed and it will let artists and architects of the city to express themselves, working out new themes in the snow part of the Park. There are similar snow parks in other countries, such as Finland and Thailand.
The infrastructure of the snow park can include: ice bar, restaurants and cafes, snow amusements, ice bowling, museum-exhibitional areas, playgrounds for kids, labyrinths etc. This list is up to contestants to decide.
The necessary infrastructure and service elements include cafes, toilets, administrative block, security desk, equipment block, staff room and other service premises, necessary for the park maintenance. The facilities which were not made of ice and snow should have the possibility to function in warm seasons.
NB! The total area of construction should be 3 000 - 24 000 sq. m.
