Novorossiysk, Russia (PortSEurope) June 8, 2018 – Following an architectural competition, Zaha Hadid Architects (ZHA) will head a 13.9 hectare (34 acre) development of Russia’s largest shipping port, Novorossiysk. The project is due to begin construction in the second half of 2019
ZHA has previously worked on a high-profile port project with its Port House in Antwerp. However, the Admiral Serebryakov Embankment project is on a far bigger scale.
Located on the Black Sea coast, the port city of Novorossiysk connects Russia with the Mediterranean, Atlantic Ocean and Suez Canal, and is both Russia’s largest port and the third-busiest port in Europe by turnover, according to ZHA. The firm’s design calls for a new fishing port, marina, hotel and piers, as well as public plazas, gardens and parks.
