The winner of the competition for the design of the station "Tulskaya" in the Moscow metro became the project "Harmony". Its authors are artist Lytov and architects Yavna, Basaria, Korochkova and Medina.
The organizer of this project was the Moscow Metro GUP, the Moscow Union of Artists and the Union of Moscow Architects. The government of the Tula region made an appeal to the government of Moscow to hold this competition. The contest was approved, and it was decided to hold it within the framework of an agreement that operates between the Tula region and the capital of Russia and covers cooperation in various fields of activity, including scientific and technical, trade, economic and socio-cultural.Due to the fact that it was the government of the Tula region that initiated the project, funding is also assigned to it. However, according to the Union of Moscow Architects, the government of the Tula Region counts on financial support from the capital.
The author's team managed to convey the spirit of this ancient city, including such widely famous images as a samovar, gingerbread and Tula accordion. According to the authors of the project, the exits from the metro station will be made in the form of portals that will resemble the opened harmony furs. By the way, the same team took second place in this competition. In their second project, the architects offered metal solid inserts that imitate a gingerbread board as decoration for the interior of the station. The entrance facades they proposed to decorate with weapons ornaments. The jury decided that the two projects could be combined.
In third place was the project "Flea", the author of which is the architect Dashevsky. It was created based on the well-known tale of N. Leskov, which tells about the famous Tula craftsman Levsha.The author of this project proposed to place a monument with a three-meter steel flea in front of the entrance to the metro.
The Tulskaya metro station was commissioned in November 1983 and is located between the Nagatinskaya and Serpukhovskaya stations of the Serpukhovsko-Timiryazevskaya line. The station is one-vaulted and shallow. Metro lines are laid just at a depth of 9.5 meters.
