The Bagration Bridge is a commercial-pedestrian bridge in the center of Moscow, built over 20 years ago. It connects Krasnopresnenskaya embankment with the Taras Shevchenko embankment. Inside the bridge there is a pedestrian zone and trade rows with panoramic windows overlooking the city and the Moscow River. The task of the architects of ARCHPOINT Bureau was to rethink the design of the bridge and make it a part of the modern urban environment, a comfortable and cozy place for meetings and leisure. At the same time it was important to take into account that the bridge is a retail outlet, thus it was necessary to place as many trade pavilions there as possible.
