Frame of Chance

“How can people interact with an architectural space and customize it according to their needs?” – was my master thesis question. In this project, architecture was represented as a “Frame” and was given certain physical parameters. These parameters were supposed to allow people to change and customize the space and bring the unexpected social situations into it. I am still in the process of deconstructing my own work before placing it here, but I would like to keep this image here, as a reminder that I need to come back to this work, as it still keeps my mind curious about the question: where is the limit of architecture and the beginning of interaction between architecture and human?

Mikrorayon Future

This project became a logical continuation of the thesis New Vision for the Sleeping Blocks which aimed to revive the life of the neighborhood and test the idea of “community”. It was created and realized while inside the ngo Critical Thinking. The project received a support from the Heinrich-Böll Foundation in Ukraine, as well as got a “green light” from the city administration. It can be seen as a test and experiment with a prototype of 1:1 scale that has been implemented in the existing open space which used to be a place for public gatherings and open cinema evenings during the Soviet Union. Unfortunately, during the 90s most of the metal frame structures have been robbed and exchanged for money by unknown. Today, you still can find a block of concrete and two rows of benches. The 2000’s brought some market economy in the face of kiosks selling beers, snacks and bread. During the day the space belongs to kids from a nearby playground and in the evenings the benches are occupied by people enjoying beer and ice-cream. Also it’s located just next to one of the inner pedestrian routs for the locals, bringing them from the bus station […]

New vision for sleeping blocks

Each 3rd person in Kharkiv (Ukraine) lives in Mikrorayon, or “sleeping block”, a heritage from the 1950-60s as a result of the Khrushov’s statement “Apartment for each family”. This statement was followed up by a clear proposal in order to achieve the targeted goal:  “We must select a limited number of standart designs of houses, schools, hospitals, buildings, kindergardens, nurseries, shops and other buildings and structures, and produce these projects using our industrial power. Let’s say for 5 years.” (from 07.12.1954, All-Union Conference of Builders). In 10 years this statement became reality for Kharkiv as well in shape of 80mx80m squares with perfectly planned infrastructure. All human needs were calculated measured and distributed among concrete jungles according to the distance from one house to certain «function». In 1991 system collapse. From the age of 4 I live in mikrorayons. My family changed at least 3 of them. There was no need to learn new streets, they all were the same. Later, the human activity started to diversify as well. Economical necessity was a driving force for this. Since 1991 most of the facroties and plants got shut down. The country was slowly moving towards market economy. Kiosk started to pop-up […]
