Democratic space for all

Democratic space for all

In recent years we have collaborated with a generation of talented and open and ambitious Russian architects and designers. Together we have dreamt on the future of the Russian city: an open, inclusive and democratic space for all.

The shocking aggression of the Russian government against the people of Ukraine and the invasion of their country goes against everything we stand for as designers. 

We strongly condemn this brutal act of violence and stand with the people of Ukraine in these though times. As a result we have stopped all our ongoing work in Russia. 

We encourage Russian citizens to be brave and dare to stand up against this war. The public spaces we have built together should now be the stage of your protest. Speak out against your government and make a change!
