In Crimea, projects have been developed for landscaping and improvement of the territory of the art cluster “Tavrida.ART”
A set of projects for landscaping and landscaping the territory of the art cluster was created as part of the educational program “Green Resort: Integrated Development of the Architectural and Landscape Environment of the Coastal Territory,” which took place from October 23 to October 29, 2023 at the Meganom Academy of Creative Industries.

When developing projects, young landscape design specialists, architects, designers, dendrologists, botanists, agronomists, soil scientists, ecologists and agricultural engineers used their professional skills to create a picture of the resort with a detailed study of individual areas, taking into account the existing landscaping, infrastructure and features of the territory.

Exchange of experience, transfer of practical and theoretical knowledge, continuity of generations — the key to the successful development of the country’s environmental agenda, — the press service of the head of the Roszapovedtsentr of the Ministry of Natural Resources of Russia quotes Daria Matsuk.
Each of the project teams was assigned to a separate section of the designed territory. During the program, participants learned about climatic features and soil composition, the features of landscape design and construction in various regions of Crimea, and also about the specifics of the dendrological assortment in Crimea, taking into account regional diversity.
Together with experts, the participants developed projects for creating a garden in a regular layout, landscaping an eco-village and the area along the road of the Tavrida art cluster, developed projects for vertical and interior landscaping of buildings on the territory of the Meganom Academy, and also proposed concepts for a greenhouse complex at the festival site , the “Garden in Glass” project on the territory of the Academy and a series of mobile flowerpots with “smart modules” for adjusting watering.
The “Green Resort” program is very relevant; with care for the younger generation, it unites children from all over our huge country and contributes to the development of domestic landscape design specialists.
