Brick plays a major role in the project, as it is a connecting element that echoes the structure of the palace itself and its unique motives.The unusual shapes of the structures are designed to give contrast to the terrain. Light shades of the road surface make the brick look idle and highlight the material. In the centre of the ensemble there is a memorial plaque in memory of the cosmonaut Komarov, after whom the square is named.
The aim of the Brick Competition is to actualise brick as a building material, as well as to develop new formal approaches in architecture, based on the rich heritage of brick architecture. Within the framework of the competition, participants created their own versions of the "brick style", and also got acquainted with the history of masonry and modern technologies.
