station“Nagatinsky zaton”

station“Klenoviy bulvar”


The concept for the Nagatinsky Zaton station proposed by the za bor workshop is an attempt to consider a transport infrastructure facility as a museum dedicated to the inhabitants of the rivers of the Moscow region and, in particular, the Nagatinsky Zaton backwater. The architects have proposed decorating the station walls with large realistic images of fish. They will be made of natural stone using the technique of a mosaic panel. The wall in the ticket hall area will feature images of different fish species depicted with encyclopedic accuracy. Each species will have a brief description.
