Topics Addressed by the Laboratory


The Laboratory of the Kharkiv School of Architecture conducts educational events, workshops, discussions and haсkathons aimed at finding innovative solutions to relevant problems.


Creating new knowledge is the Laboratory’s primary objective. Our team works at projects focused on problems of cities and areas in need of comprehensive innovative solutions. Our approach is based on studying the situation, designing a scientifically-grounded methodology and applying it to get the best possible solution.


The Laboratory specialists have experience of organizing and supporting architectural and urban-planning competitions. We are convinced that competitions can create conditions for interesting and unconventional solutions. When we organize a competition, we provide professional support in its administration and ensuring high-quality content, and we also moderate the process of creating the competition brief and the input situation.
