Red Garden

Location: Barrikadnaya Street

The name Red, in the sense of beautiful, represents a wide associative range of the Russian capital and its gardens of various epochs, and also emphasizes the red as the color of the Russian avant-garde. Red Garden is a tribute to the memory of Konstantin Melnikov, who in the 1920s headed the Workshop of Culture and Recreation Parks of the USSR. His activities largely influenced the image of Moscow parks. The geometry of the garden refers to the work of iconic avant-garde artists, while the main colors, - red, white and black, - refer to the colors of the Russian avant-garde. The choice of plants supports the theme of the Russian garden.
