Ukrainian Sphere of Architecture Develops in New Conditions

Ukrainian architects presented aesthetic bomb shelters for private houses and schools made by 3D printer

The Ukrainian humanitarian fund Team4UA is working on its pilot project Hive. The project is aimed at creating educational institutions using 3D printers. Already in Lviv, work has begun on a school for the youngest students. The building will have only one floor, but the announced capacity is 100 people. The school will have classrooms for lessons, an office for a working meeting of teachers, bathrooms, and a hall with an inclusive space. The cost of implementation is about $1.5 million. The fund says that from 2024 children will already be able to study at the school.

Russia destroyed 2.000 schools, of which 277 institutions were destroyed. Therefore, the fund Team4UA is implementing an important project and also wants to join the restoration of bridges, houses, and critical infrastructure thanks to 3D building printers.

In addition, Ukraine presented the Shield project. Its founders were architects, builders, and the former Ukrainian military. The shield involves the creation of aesthetic and simultaneously moving shelters. They can be installed near private houses and high-rise buildings. The shelter will have a streamlined shape to reduce the impact of the blast wave, the effects of falling fragments of ammunition, etc. The size of the shelter is 27 m², where up to 60 people can be accommodated.

Shelters have already been tested at a military base. After the war, the premises can be used as houses for guests, cafes, etc.

But now, Ukrainian talents aim to combat the consequences of Russian military aggression.
