An Austrian Architect Will Rebuild Irpin

Gerhard Hauser arrived in Ukraine to inspect the city and discuss the restoration project of an art center

Austrian architect Gerhard Hauser arrived in Ukraine on July 17 as part of the Irpin Reconstruction Summit. The architect had the opportunity to tour the city and form an impression of the scale of the works.

"I am shocked by what I saw on the way here — what was done to handsome Irpen, how wounded Ukraine now," said Gerhard Hauser.

After a tour of the town, Hauser met with the mayor of Irpin and discussed the details of the object's future for which he is preparing a project — a children's art center.

"I am sincerely grateful to volunteer Oksana Tyshchenko for her help in organizing the meeting with Gerhard Hauser and other international negotiations. Working as a judge of the Northern commercial court of appeal from the first days of the war, she joined the work of the humanitarian headquarters of Irpen and coordinated negotiations regarding international aid to the affected Irpin — the town that stopped the enemy on the way to the capital of Ukraine," the town's mayor Oleksandr Markushyn.

Gerhard Hauser is an apologist for ecological technologies in construction, often emphasizes natural and secondary raw materials and bets on greening. Irpin is not Hauser's first work in Ukraine: he previously provided a project for a residence in Lviv, an education center in the city of Bryukhovychy, and a hotel in Kropyvnytskyi.

We remind you that Japanese architect Hiroki Matsuura will also participate in the recovery of Irpin.
