Competition is a part of a program for the development of one of the oldest towns in Russian Federation — Derbent. The master plan developed by the competitors will be an important document, which will determine the direction of socio-economic and geographical development of Derbent in the medium term.
Its implementation will support Derbent’s internal transformation, the integration of the town with global processes, and an improvement in the efficiency of the use of the town’s resources. Competitors will also need to develop a concept for the development of the central public space of Derbent, the town’s embankment, which runs for 12 km along the Caspian Sea.
The competition is taking place on the initiative of the I Love Derbent Charity Fund, with the support of the Government of the Republic of Dagestan and the Administration of Derbent Urban District. The Agency for Strategic Development CENTER is serving as operator and design consultant for the competition.
