Green corridor
location:Kharkiv, Ukraine
status:concept (2018)
team:Yegor Artyukh, Oleg Drozdov, Vyacheslav Zhemir, Kseniia Ponomarenko, Tymofii Ulanchenko

Although Kharkiv has as many as four rivers – Kharkiv, Lopan, Nemyshlya and Udy, which unite all the major districts of the city, their natural potential is hardly used. There are only three well-maintained places at the riverfront, but they are located far from each other in different parts of the city. In the meantime, 430 ha of industrial estates face the riverfront.



rivers in Kharkiv:
– run through the whole city;
– connect all the districts;
– are valuable natural resources.


green corridors with the total length of 58 km (along 4 major rivers in Kharkiv)


The renovation of the riverfront involves several aspects: embankments and parks, retrofitting the former industrial estates, improvement of the existing bridges.


new types of embankments



system of parks
20 ha of potential parks along the river


renovation of industrial estates
430 ha of industrial estates that face the river



The highlight of our proposal is the idea to connect two green areas of Kharkiv: the new embankment and Shevchenko garden.
