"Safe Space. Concept for the reconstruction of a Kharkiv school destroyed by a Russian missile by IK Architects

The team of Kharkiv-based IK Architects presents a project for the reconstruction of Gymnasium 47, which was hit by a Russian missile on July 4, 2022.

"VILNA School can become one of the symbols of rethinking the education system and approaches to designing educational institutions," says architect Kateryna Yarova.

According to her, new trends and the digitalization of the educational process are forcing a thorough reformulation of the approach to education, revising the principles of forming educational institutions, recreational spaces, and spatial design.
