VTB Arena Park comprises the redevelopment of the Dynamo Moscow stadium and its surrounding park. Erick van Egeraat proposed a contemporary multifunctional urban regenerator, that will play a key role in transforming its wider surroundings. Erick van Egeraat's 300.000m2 multifunctional culture, health and sports centre will be developed on a 116.000m2 site and will comprise a 45.000 seat Stadium Arena for Dynamo Moscow, a 10.000 seat Arena Hall, a Retail and Entertainment complex, restaurants, parking and other facilities.

Erick van Egeraat and his Russian partner Mikhail Posokhin selected a team of Russian and internationally acclaimed consultants for this competition, including Bollinger + Grohmann structural engineers, Amsterdam ArenA Advisory, Artec Acoustic consultants and Illuminator lighting consultants. Erick van Egeraat's design was chosen out of five international competitors, including NPS Tchoban Voss with gmp von Gerkan Marg und Partner, STD development with Interstudio, ABD with Perkins Eastman International, and Mosproekt 4 with Populous.

"After the announcement of our winning design the jury presented their ambition for the site, acknowledging that this was the only design that achieved all objectives whilst respecting the park and the monumental value," commented Erick van Egeraat. "This challenging site embodies a great tradition which we must honour. It also holds all potential conflicts a city can offer. To resolve this, we proposed a design that embraces the history and context of the Dynamo stadium and the Petrovski Park and creates a contemporary icon of the 21st century of which the people of Moscow can be proud. A project that will provide diversity to the area and reinforce its identity."
