The project method of development of regions is typical for Russia — anniversaries of cities, international summits, large sports and cultural events become drivers of development.The FIFA World Cup was held in 11 Russian cities, each having in addition to a large stadium new airports, metro stations, hotels and other infrastructure.

Are there any established technologies of conversion and integration of legacy into the life of cities and regions?
