What makes an architecture school? This exhibition aims to promote transparency in architectural education in Ukraine through a unique collaboration between Outpost Office and the students and faculty of the Kharkiv School of Architecture. The core objective of this project is to support Ukraine’s ongoing educational reform process by increasing the contributions of international academics in the creation, evaluation, and visibility of positive models of architectural education in Ukraine.

Open/Work implements design tactics and construction methods from Ukraine’s iconic bazaars to produce a suspended field of objects. The items exhibited include student models and drawings, as well as lecture posters, books, pencils, pillows, hard hats, and woodworking tools—highlighting the material abundance necessary for architectural learning. The exhibition is a floating archive that invites visitors to look at objects, touch them, and inspect them more closely.
