The second Iturup Style International Geodesy Competition

The Iturup Style International Geodesy Competition, which has gained recognition among the professional community of artists, architects and landscape designers and has earned the respect of the inhabitants of Iturup Island, will be held again. In 2020, a large-scale creative project will be dedicated to kinetic energy and the art of interaction with light, wind, water and space.

The website of the Hydrostroy JSC, the organizer of the contest, published the Regulations on the Second International Geodesy Contest "Iturup Style".

"The Hydrostroy company was born on Iturup, and here it was getting back on its feet. The very name - "Hydrostroy" - contains the fact that we are builders. You can just put a fence, or you can - forged, beautiful. We are going on the second way. I have lived on Iturup for more than 30 years, for me the island is my homeland, home. We all go abroad, we see how something has been done there, and we want our house to be no worse or better," said Yuri SVETLIKOV, an inspirer of ideas, an honorary jury member of the First International Geodesy Contest "Iturup Style", General Director of JSC "Hydrostroy".

According to the regulation, from July 1 to July 30, 2020 on the largest island of the Kuril Ridge, about seven teams that have passed the competitive selection will be able to create and install their sculptures and objects.

The main tasks of the contest:

- Updating the image of Iturup Island as a place with unique landscape and artistic components; 

- Creation of sculptural compositions that will emphasize the natural and historical merits of the territory;

- application of the best Russian and foreign experience in landscaping and landscape design in Kuril Islands;

- Decorating public spaces in the city of Kuril Kurilsk, Reidovo and Kitovoi villages with new art objects.

The selection of groups of participants will take place from January 10 to May 20, 2020.
