CANactions School, the first school for urban studies in Ukraine, has launched an international call for applicants for
STUDIO #2: “Tackling the Future of Ukrainian (Post)industrial Cities." The seminar will take place from February to May 2016.
The program has an architectural & urban focus, and is open to non-architects as well -- all that is required is an interest in (Post)industrial Cities. STUDIO #2 will look at the following questions: Do (post)industrial cities of Ukraine have a future? Have they truly become post- or do they still remain industrial? How to take a step forward from a utopian Soviet past to a contemporary city without the utopian pretense? Participants will be working on finding answers to these questions and raising new ones through developing strategic scenarios and tactical proposals for Kramatorsk – an Eastern Ukrainian city which has been chosen for our case study.
Furthermore, the school graduates are given the possibility to implement their own projects with the support of CANactions, participate in urban development programs initiated by Ukrainian and European city councils, conduct research projects abroad with partners of CANactions, and become interns and employees in leading European bureaus and companies focused on architecture and urbanism.
