For a couple of minutes here you can get the entire center of Moscow, around the Garden ring, and even try to direct the life of a big city, changing day to night and back. A small building that houses a miniature of the capital, located on Lilac alley of VDNKH. Today is the first urban development of Moscow, where you can get acquainted with the most relevant urban projects.

the Oval pavilion with a glass facade was built at ENEA in 2017 specifically for the model of Moscow. Its main exhibit covers an area of 429 square meters, is the Central part of the city with 23 thousand buildings and constructions in scale 1:400.

the Layout of Moscow — not just entertainment for guests of VDNKH. For professionals it is a visual aid for exploring the urban fabric. The layout allows to consider in detail the transport system, public transport routes, the location and characteristics of objects of culture, sport, business, trade and more. Architects can use the layout below to see how the future will look like their designs, just changing parts.

for eight years on the layout worked. She carried out full production cycle: created drawings of buildings, the terrain and the objects themselves, connect each house to the highlight and made it into a computer database. By the way, any educational institution training specialists in the profession “desktop publisher”. As a rule, in the workshop people worked with an architectural education, or design.

the layout Itself is a large rectangle made of PVC, which is oriented to the cardinal. Its base about a meter located on metal structures. It follows the natural terrain, all of its height, the master took in the city General plan. The layout consists of 644 parts about the size of 1.2 x 1.2 meters. It can be assembled and disassembled as a designer, as well as to alter depending on the situation (for example, if buildings are constructed, demolished, changing the traffic infrastructure of the area).

“During the reconstruction in 2019 a team of GBU “Rosstroiinvest” actualized 305 appearance of buildings and structures. Some have recently changed the color of the roof, the other turned a few degrees for greater accuracy. Disappeared from the layout of several of the demolished buildings — such as shopping center “Pyramid” on Pushkin square. In addition, the layout of a monument to Prince Vladimir on the Borovitsky area, street Gilyarovskogo removed tram tracks, and the triumphal square and the square Red Gate appeared in the reconstructed” — said Farit Fazylzyanov, Director of GBU “Rosstroiinvest”, which was engaged in the manufacture of the layout.

the Uniqueness of the Moscow layout in the smallest detalizetsii. Is not just a set of conditional blocks on a huge table: all buildings were created using detailed drawings. Three-dimensional parts such as domes, frescoes or sculpture, made through 3D modeling. The decor on the facades and complicated roof some houses are made by technology of three-dimensional milling. The basic material for them is polystyrene of a thickness of one millimeter, two millimeters.

On the facades of buildings have Windows, parapets, mullions, pilasters and other elements. Window openings with covers painted to match that corresponds to a particular building, and the layouts are designed so that they can be illuminated from the inside.

the Wizard did it all ramps, underpasses, walking area with the maximum of the scale accuracy. The markings on the roads they have done on real satellite imagery. Miniature tiny streets, parked cars, and copies of the Moscow river, made of a special gel, floating ships.

Trees and other green plantings were made by hand from wire and wood chips, are able to change the color of the iridescent fountains of Plexiglas. Each freestanding lantern is one tiny led, for lighting miniature buildings experts used the led strip.

In a tiny Moscow there is even a small Muscovites: they can be seen by looking at the house. People and curtains printed on the tape.

On the layout you can easily change the time of day but time of year is always one — mini-Moscow of eternal summer. According to experts, as the miniature city one looks the most spectacular. They tried to make the layout not look gaudy and contrast and not included in dissonance with the real views of the capital. For greater integrity the facades painted in pastel shades and roofs used a certain color scheme.

most of the details needed for copies of houses of the centre of Moscow. The houses here are “candy” that I want to eat them! Nice colors, “ogurchiki”! Outside the Third ring road become a model. The industrial area begins: on the one hand, its easier to do on the other hand, there is no beauty of the heart of Moscow.

On the facades of historic buildings, craftsmen have recreated even the mosaics and bas-reliefs. For example, the layout of a Large theatre is decorated with a miniature Quadriga, executed in exact conformity with the original. And the Spassky tower in the allotted time strike.

Details have tried to “revive” and modern buildings. So, on the facade of shopping center “European” you can see the movie posters of the Soviet years. “Many people think that historical buildings do much more difficult than modern. But this is a myth. It turns out that historic buildings are difficult to reproduce decoration of facades and the design is quite simple. These homes are assembled like blocks. And the modern a lot of nuances: the number of floors and shape. Therefore, we first made frames, “adjusted” elevations, and then they are glued. The work is very laborious!”, noted Farit Fazylzyanov.

One of the most difficult objects he called Petrovsky Palace and the Krutitsy metochion. “The compound was very small, and had to work especially carefully. Usually artists do not leave the territory to go round and measure tens of thousands of objects impossible. Layout uses all available information from the Internet. But in the case of the compound the team had to leave the place”, — said the Director of state budgetary institution “Rosstroyinvest”.

Another very painstaking work was the miniature Park of the Victory, which took four of the layout size of 1.2 x 1.2 meters. As if from the height of bird flight can be seen as close to nature landscape, St. George temple, Museum of Victory, the Winners square with its famous obelisk topped with the figure of Nicky, a Park with 600 trees, alleys and sidewalks.

Almost all the details of the layout connected to the lighting system. Visitors to the exhibition can choose lighting scenarios: in regions and districts, by types of projects (residential houses, administrative buildings, cultural facilities, transport, boulevards, historic streets and so on). You can highlight, tunnels and roads at separate locations or high-rise.

the lighting System layout recreates the natural (day and night) coverage of the city. It simulates the movement of the sun, clouds and other natural phenomena, and includes special effects for a more advantageous demonstration of the layout.

All lights working on the led’s with 12 volts. In the layout there are LEDs of different shades of white light, so you can put the light accents. Public buildings are illuminated with cool shade and living warm. In buildings above 30 stories, in addition to internal, there is external accent lighting (at the towers “Moscow-city” or Stalin’s skyscrapers).

to Control the backlight manually or in automatic mode. On request it is possible to reprogram and sync with other multimedia technologies. Periodically, the staff of the exhibition at ENEA create real light show. So, visitors to the pavilion can see the show under the title “Metropolis of Moscow”, “seasons”, “the Architectural styles of Moscow, History of Moscow”, “Best city in the world”. On weekdays they are held every hour, on weekends and holidays — every 30 minutes. A website a record of every show.

In the pavilion, there are plenty of interactive opportunities for guests. On special touch screens can be seen every layout object at 40 times magnification. The image is broadcast from up to four cameras in Full HD and helps Rto izgledati all the fine details that are not visible from afar. Inside system has its own categories that help you choose to consider in detail one of the objects: the Kremlin, buildings of the Government of Russia, the state Duma, the Moscow Mayor’s office or any other. There is a photo gallery where you can also consider the different buildings and read about them on Russian and English languages.

On the layout of the balcony, where there are interactive kiosks.
