a HOUSE for HOME is an architecture lab for young Ukrainian creatives, who currently find themselves far from home. In a series of weekend workshops, 30 participants between 11-18 years old are invited to explore the meanings of home through architecture, design and play. The program is designed as a collaboration between Netherlands-based practitioners and Ukrainian architects at risk due to the Russian invasion of Ukraine. We consider the lab as a pilot project to develop a long-term and sustainable program of design based learning around architecture, urbanism and spatial design with young refugees from different backgrounds.
Project in collaboration with Studio Kitsunya, Urban Reform, Het Nieuwe Instituut, Ukrainian House Rotterdam and Ukraine-Netherlands Urban Network, with support of the Dutch Creative Industries Fund
