The Dynamo Moscow stadium (1928) is located at Petrovsky Park, a site with a rich history that goes back to the year 1782, when Catherina the Great ordered the construction of the Petrovski Palace. Over time the area became a main Moscow cultural and entertainment get-away. In order to comply with contemporary international requirements, and to support Russia’s bid to host the 2018 FIFA World Cup, the client organized the tender for the development and reconstruction of the site. The competition was won by Erick van Egeraat and his team. VTB Arena Park comprises the redevelopment of the Dynamo Moscow stadium and its surrounding park. Erick van Egeraat proposed a contemporary multifunctional urban regenerator that will play a key role in transforming its wider surroundings. The culture, health and sports centre will comprise a 45,000-seat Stadium Arena for Dynamo Moscow, a 10,000-seat Arena Hall, a Retail and Entertainment complex, restaurants, parking and other facilities. The two stadiums will be situated within the ring of the old stadium, preserving the perimeter façade of the existing arena and integrating it functionally and esthetically into the new proposal. To be financially self sustaining VTB Arena Park will also host cultural and retail facilities. The mix of sports, culture and retail facilities creates profitable and vibrant activities 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days a year.VTB Arena allows the existing park to be completely preserved as a public, green area. The complex is designed in full compliance with the FIFA regulations, allowing the stadium to play a significant role in Russia’s ambitions to host the 2018 FIFA world cup.
