Make your Place in the City


community-leading transformations of abandoned city places into public spaces

Make your Place in the City


community-leading transformations of abandoned city places into public spaces
do it together vs do it yourself - do it for people vs do it for yourself - do transformations vs build from scratch

Participatory transformation can help to build more fair city and to contribute to reorganization of social-economic relationship as well. This can be achieved by the notion that such kind of practice is aimed to change not only a physical space, transforming it from vacant to public, but also oriented to other goals (define new org. models, formats of in-kind support, solving a property problems). With Kremenchuk projects the main accomplishment was the emergence of resilient local community. Therefore, with these results, such transformations have a lot of sense in those countries that undergo transformations themselves. In case of Ukraine, bottom-up urban practices remains a rare option to make a comfortable city, inclusive for everybody. We also see this practice as a part of long-term city development strategy. Firstly through increasing of resilient local community and secondly through defining of new instruments, that widen the notion of common architectural practice.



This community-leading transformation in Kremenchuk has been done in collaboration with NGO Cultural Dialogue (Kremenchuk, UA), Toestand (Brussels, EU), Communa ASBL (Brussels, EU).

from weak local team to resilience community through three international projects during a year.
