Kharkiv School of Architecture_Training team

12N is involved in the design of the new educational institute ‘Kharkiv School of Architecture’. Founder Oleg Drozdov invited Fulco Treffers to reflect and advise on the concept program, as well as to provide a series of lectures.¬†Treffers is now a member of the training team that is shaping the Master program (starting September 2020) and is the curator of the second year of this program.

The aim of the course is to boost the level of architecture education in Ukraine. It should focus on developing new work, as well as new architectural language and approach that would fit the challenges of our time.

The aim is to introduce a new generation of architects and urban planners who can take responsibility for the quality of space and societal challenges, using modern technology and new ideas. The program does not shy away from challenges, also tackling sociological, philosophical and ethical issues in order to elevate the architectural level.

Treffers has been involved in the program as an advisor and guest lecturer since 2016. In 2019, the creation of the Master of Architecture program within the school was stranded at the very last minute. In 2020, it is expected that there will be enough registrations in order to start.
