  1. 1. List of answers to questions asked by participants in the architectural competition to develop concepts for the plannedresidential areas of the Technopark at the Skolkovo Innovation Center. Part 2 QUESTIONS ASKED BY PARTICIPANTS IN THE ARCHITECTURAL COMPETITIONto develop concepts for the planned residential areas of the Technopark at the Skolkovo Innovation Center Part 2 FIRST STAGE OF THE COMPETITION Moscow 2011 1
  2. 2. List of answers to questions asked by participants in the architectural competition to develop concepts for the plannedresidential areas of the Technopark at the Skolkovo Innovation Center. Part 2TABLE OF CONTENTS:1. Parking and Transportation -3-2. Orientation of buildings, with examples -4-3. Organizational issues -9-4. Questions in connection with the answers to the questions in Part 1 -14- 2
  3. 3. List of answers to questions asked by participants in the architectural competition to develop concepts for the plannedresidential areas of the Technopark at the Skolkovo Innovation Center. Part 2Parking and TransportationQuestion 1.Do I need to provide parking places for conventional vehicles or only electric vehicles andbicycles are permitted on the site? Are gas-powered vehicles to be limited just beyond the"periphery" of the territory? Should there be a possibility provided for an electric vehicle or anordinary car to have direct access to an entrance of a building or a private house? Should there beparking area designed for residents to transfer from their regular cars to electric vehicles?Answer 1.The parking lot is outside of the competition territory. There will be no conventional vehicles atterritory D2.Question 2.Island No. 6 - "townhouses"The specified number of parking spaces is 90, while the number of housing units (apartments) is264, i.e. about 1 electric vehicle for 3 apartments.What are these parking spaces for, and how will the electric vehicles be used - whether they willbe the property of their owners (if so, then it would be logical to have a ratio of 1 electric car per 1apartment) or will shared vehicles be located here, used just to reach the intercept parking lots andmoving within the Center?Answer 2.Electric cars will not be in private ownership, the residents will use public transportation. Thepercentage of parking lots for car owners is very low. The main thing is to provide driveways tobuildings and boarding and exiting points for passengers, as well as places for temporary parkingthat will not impede the circulation of public transport and electric cars.Question 3.Island No. 6 - "townhouses" 3
  4. 4. List of answers to questions asked by participants in the architectural competition to develop concepts for the plannedresidential areas of the Technopark at the Skolkovo Innovation Center. Part 2How strict are the requirements for the UNDERGROUND parking lot and its location at thecentral square - or can parking be arranged in above ground covered parking lots, for examplealong the buildings?Answer 3.There will be no underground parking lots.Question 4.Can we, in the design of housing, offer our own ideas (corresponding to our architectural concept)for the road/street network? Or should we only do a volumetric-architectural proposal, arefinement of the road/street network designed by an architect - district curator?Answer 4.You can offer your ownQuestion 5.In the "Competition Program 2", the housing development examples do not include turn aroundareas for fire engines. Accordingly, are we required to consider this in our proposal, as these dotake up a lot of space?Answer 5.The turn-around areas may be located outside the circle. 4
  5. 5. List of answers to questions asked by participants in the architectural competition to develop concepts for the plannedresidential areas of the Technopark at the Skolkovo Innovation Center. Part 2Orientation of buildings, with examplesQuestion 1.We would also like to know what types of changes are allowed to the housing development plans.- Do we need to preserve the horizontal housing development plan?- If yes, is it permitted to alter these "lines", can they be, for example, wavy?- How far can the buildings be moved, relative to each other?Answer 1.You do not necessarily have to observe these lines; the project is given only as an example, so youcan offer your own arrangement.Question 2.From the completion program it is not clear to us how strictly we must comply with therequirements of the urban planning concepts within Islands 1, 2 and 3. Only two requirementswere clearly stated: compliance with the radius of the circle and compliance with the orientationof buildings, coordinated with the Technopark.All other requirements are in the form of quantitative indicators.Does this mean that the residential blocks in our architectural concept should also be oriented withlong facades on the east and west?Answer 2.In this case, orienting the long facades to the east and west allows us to minimize the number ofapartments that face directly to the north and have low insolation. 5
  6. 6. List of answers to questions asked by participants in the architectural competition to develop concepts for the plannedresidential areas of the Technopark at the Skolkovo Innovation Center. Part 2Question 3.On the town-planning grid, the districts are shown a certain distance between the axes, such as 18and 20 meters for the residential multi-apartment buildings concept. May we change this town-planning grid, or do we have to fit our architectural concept into this grid?Answer 3.It is possible to change the layout; the main thing is not to go beyond the curators’ general idea,and to achieve comfortable living conditions.Question 4.Do we have to abide by the linear layout of the streets (buildings) within the circle, as shown inthe examples?Answer 4.It is not mandatory.Question 5.Are the conditions of the competition provided in these examples, such as the distance betweenthe buildings, position and shape of buildings, widths of lanes, mandatory? Or, with the exceptionof the boulevard, is only the orientation of the objects along the North-South of the Technoparkmandatory?Answer 5.No, they are not. See also answer 16. 6
  7. 7. List of answers to questions asked by participants in the architectural competition to develop concepts for the plannedresidential areas of the Technopark at the Skolkovo Innovation Center. Part 2Question 6.Does a draft design of the main streets in the Islands exist?Answer 6.The main street is proposed by the curator, but you have the opportunity to offer your ownconfiguration and profile.Question 7.What are acceptable deviations for the areas?Answer 7.You should adhere to the specified parameters. The deviation from the average areas and typescorrelation is possible, but within 5%.Question 8.Can we propose a different arrangement for the public square in a residential district?Answer 8.Yes, you may.Question 9.Can we change the direction of the pedestrian walkway?Answer 9.Yes, you may.Question 10.Can we change the place of entry and exit into the residential district?Answer 10. 7
  8. 8. List of answers to questions asked by participants in the architectural competition to develop concepts for the plannedresidential areas of the Technopark at the Skolkovo Innovation Center. Part 2Yes, you may, if it does not impede the road traffic outside the district.Question 11.If we wish to offer our solution that contains only low-rise buildings (cottages), do we need tosubmit one or two versions of cottages? Or is this at our discretion?From the conditions of the competition, in particular the text of Chapter 9.2 of the DesignCompetition is not entirely clear.Answer 11.The participant submits one tablet for a typology. If the participant decides to submit two versionsof one and the same typology (e.g. a cottage), they are submitted as two different competitiveprojects under different code numbers.Question 12.There is also uncertainty as to requirements for the premises of the designed cottages. Will therebe any instructions forthcoming on this subject?Answer 12.The structure of the basic premises is standard for all cottages: living room, kitchen, dining room,master bedroom, children’s room, guest bathroom, master bathroom. One needs to proportionallyadd childrens rooms/studies and additional bathrooms where it is possible in medium and largesize cottages.Question 13.Do we need to submit our original solution for the district development plan and the general siteplan design? These items are indicated in the Design Competition, but at the same time, in theCompetition Program, there is included an example of a residential district development plan.Answer 13.Original solutions are welcome! The example is given only for reference.Question 14.Terms of Reference of the competition for the 1st stage (see page 3) listing these requirements: 8
