Ukrainian and Dutch spatial professionals build network for reconstruction Ukraine 

Ukraine - the Netherlands Urban Network

The war in Ukraine has reduced cities to rubble and has affected millions of people. Although the war is still raging in full force, it is good to start thinking about rebuilding the country now. And in doing so, listening to the needs of Ukrainians.

To this end, Ukrainian and Dutch spatial professionals have united in the Ukraine – the Netherlands Urban Network (UNUN). So that they can meet the challenges of a sustainable and liveable reconstruction of Ukraine with joint effort. The UNUN network responds to urgent needs such as job search, knowledge exchange and capacity building. The UNUN network and the online platform unun.nu will be presented at the City Makers Congres (“Stadmakerscongres”) in Rotterdam on Friday 4 November.

Chief Government Architect Francesco Veenstra: “Rebuilding Ukraine is not just about asphalt, concrete and bricks. It is about a sustainable, liveable and dignified restoration of the country. I call on the Dutch design and construction sector to share design strength and knowledge and become active within the UNUN network.”

Oleksandra Tkachenko: “Ukraine faces an immense spatial challenge. And can become the innovative forerunner in urban planning and sustainable design in the 21st century.”

Ukraine - the Netherlands Urban Network UNUN

Matching work

In the coming period, the network is committed to organising studio visits, educational exchange, workshops and a lecture series. Ukrainian architects, landscape designers and urban planners looking for work in the Netherlands can use the website to get in touch with Dutch design and engineering firms willing to (temporarily) employ people from Ukraine.

UNUN is a joint initiative of Ukrainian spatial professionals in the Netherlands, the Board of Government Advisors, AIR Rotterdam, Independent School for the City, Het Nieuwe Instituut, PBL Netherlands Environmental Assessment Agency, Kuiper Compagnons and Orange Architects.

A House For Lebbeus Woods In Ukraine

Text from ICARCH Competitions

The question is: if Lebbeus Woods lived in Ukraine, now, would he have imagined what very often he imagined in his drawn oeuvre?

A similar question could have been: if Peter Eisenman lived in Haiti, at the time of the tremendous earthquake that devastated the country, would he have still chosen the theoretical banner of En Terror Firma?

But then, perhaps it is not art that copies life, but the other way around.

So maybe, to an extent at least, both Lebbeus Woods and Peter Eisenman had premonitions…they anticipated disasters that were to come.

But maybe those disasters were mainly within themselves.

A House For Lebbeus Woods In Ukraine

Architecture is War – War is Architecture – wrote Lebbeus Woods.
And this year there are 10 years since he died.

We invite you to imagine A HOUSE FOR LEBBEUS WOODS – in Ukraine.

Would it be very similar to what we already see, published, almost daily?
Or would it be in some kind of opposition?
What do you think?

Please reflect on the way he drew… he drew like an old master… magnificently well… the manner of drawing was somehow in disjunction with the matter depicted.

Woods was obsessed by death, although one could have rarely found a more vital man than him. Maybe not by accident Peter Cook called him “the craggy optimist.” Yet, this “optimist” drew some of the most horrific scenes in architectural imagery, lately.

Ukraine housing destruction ruin war

Would we like to live in his drawings? What do his drawings represent? A world in turmoil. A world in conflict. A world at war with itself.

Was there any Apollo to be envisioned at the end of the dark tunnel?

Not really, although the beauty of the drawings (if one makes abstraction of that they depicted) could be seen, somehow, sometimes, Apollonian, although Woods was rather attracted, it seems, by Dionysus.

We invite you to imagine a house that would be, possibly, an extension of his drawn works, a physical expression of his fears and his hopes, an architecture of turbulence, at a time of turbulence, in a world which cannot stand still.

DESIGN A HOUSE FOR LEBBEUS WOODS – IN UKRAINE.

Please send us ANY work, ANY size and ANY format, digitally, to [email protected] We will publish all of them. If you have any questions, please contact us. The deadline is October 30th, 2022.

Thank you, I C A R C H

National Union of Architects of Ukraine News

The National Union of Architects of Ukraine has called upon the International Union of Architects to revoke Russia’s membership of the global institution, following the country’s invasion of Ukraine.

“We demand that Russia be deprived of its membership of the UIA,” wrote National Union of Architects of Ukraine (CANY) president Oleksandr Chyzhevsky in a letter to International Union of Architects (UIA) president Jose Luis Cortes Delgado.

Chyzhevsky called for the UIA – a non-governmental body that represents global architects in over 100 countries – to “strongly and unequivocally condemn the criminal actions of the Russian government” following the country’s invasion of Ukraine, which began last week.

Yesterday UIA expressed its “unwavering solidarity with all those affected” in a statement, but Chyzhevsky called for the organisation to go further and expel the Union of Architects of Russia from the international organisation.

“Those who do not condemn Russia’s actions support them,” said Chyzhevsky. “They support a crime against all mankind, incompatible with UIA’s humanitarian goals.”

“We are convinced that the UIA must decide on Russia’s membership,” he continued. “If we turn a blind eye to their passive position, we will also side with the enemy, with the destruction of human values.”

International Union of Architects Statement

In the face of the mounting tragic events in Ukraine, the International Union of Architects (UIA) expresses its unwavering solidarity with all those affected and calls for unity and peace among nations. On behalf of the international community of architects, we condemn any act of violence or war affecting the well-being and dignity of humans, join the global appeal against war and call for the immediate restoration of peace.

The UIA was founded in 1948 – after the Second World War – to unite architects around the world and actively participate in the reconstruction of devastated cities and villages. We continue to believe that the greatest obligation of humanity is the preservation of peace.

As the leading global organisation of architects committed to creating safe and healthy environments, we also call for the protection of the invaluable architectural heritage threatened by this conflict.

UIA President
