07/04/22. For the last five weeks we have been developing and implementing projects for internal displaced people centers in Lviv together with our partners Replus bureau and Ponomarenko Bureau. The priority was to create in a very short time a package of solutions, which will be simple and quick to install, as well as adaptive.
We tested different designs, as well as developed furniture options for the centers. We focused on the solution of modular frameworks made of cardboard pipes designed by Japanese architect Shigeru Ban. It is easy to install, reusable and recyclable.
Last week, we completed setting-up the fifth center. Places for more than 440 people have been set up in various locations in Lviv. We have already received requests for the next thirteen centers in different cities of Ukraine. Vast spaces will become into place of hope.
This is not a new home, but it is a space where people may feel safe and calm. It is about the humane privacy, respect and sensitivity to each other that most of us need today.
These solutions developed for the conversion of premises into shelters are replicable, easy and quick to install. And we are ready to share our experience.
