A101 is a project for a new city of 150.000 people and 13 million m2 of housing near Moscow and the largest development of the Masstab Company. The planning for the city as a whole was designed by an international group of urban designers headed by the Dutch office Maxwan.


This masterplan and the rest of the A101 project are based on the Block City concept that was developed by the competition’s curator Bart Goldhoorn. This means that 80% of the urban blocks in the project should have a standard size.
Simultaneously with the closed competition for the masterplan, Masshtab Company invites architects from all over the world to send in projects for an open competition for urban blocks that can be used in the A101 project. Since it is planned to build over 500 blocks, the result of the competition will not just be the choice of one winning project, but the creation of a catalogue of possible solutions that can be applied on different locations and in different stages of realization of the A101 project.
