So, the competition for the design of two stations on Yellow line South-Western extension is now over.

Let me recap: the domestic, then - international competition was launched in summer for the design of "Solntsevo" (Sun City) and "Novo-Peredelkino" (means new outskirt of the town where river boats were reformed) stations (TBO Y2017).
After the first eliminations made by 12 architects, designers and city planning experts, there were 5 designs for each station left.
Than it was decided, that the city authorities will have an additional voice, and another one will be made by popular vote through mobile app (only local dwellers registered on public e-services portal were eligible).

So, firstly came the public vote:

For "Solntsevo":

46.8% - Nefa Architects bureau (St-Petersbourg)

19.9% - Anton Barklyanskiy (Moscow)

15.78% - Wall Group (Moscow)

For "Novo-Peredelkino":

34.2% - United Riga Architects (Latvia)

21.43% - VoX Architects (St-Petersbourg)

16% both are FAS(t) Bureau (Moscow)

and Gerber Architecten (Germany)

So, for the finals the vote for "Solntsevo" was unanimous with "JeanNouvel-ish" Nefa Architects as winner, as for the "Novo-Peredelkino" - 6 experts voted for brutalistic FAS(t), 6 - for post-modern United Riga, so city representative have decided to go in line with popular vote and United Riga won.
This experience was considered successful, so new competitions will follow on.
