Landscaped pedestrian canyon is located in Yekaterinburg, Russia. Before the appearance of the city, there was a natural canyon, so the main task of the project was to return this territory to its original natural form. It was important to give access to all local residents to this space. The area is characterized by mountainous terrain and a vertical drop up to 40 meters, so it was necessary to consider options for use for different groups of users. Also, it was necessary to create a landscape resistant to the harsh continental climate. In total, more than 30 plant species have been planted.
