This week’s #buildingdoodle sketch is by architect David Roden. The concept sketch for a visitor centre in Druzhba Park Moscow is part of the proposed restoration of the park by landscape architect LDA Design. The 420m2 building will create a visitor centre containing restaurant, gallery and park rangers’ offices and visitor information point.

Roden says: “Situated at the centre of the park facing three lakes, the building is conceived as a highly transparent space that appears to float in the landscape.

“The building is highly modular for speed of construction, utilising a minimal lightweight steel frame and foundations to reduce the impact on the park, with structural and environmental design undertaken in collaboration with Arup.”
