On May 12 - 16, 2015 IZOLYATSIA will present its annual residency program Architecture Ukraine. The presentation will be held at the International architectural festival CANactions

Architecture Ukraine is a new project organized with the aim of establishing cooperation between local and foreign experts. For the summer 2015 (July to August) IZOLYATSIA will invite eight international and local professionals (from the disciplines of architecture, art, data visualization and science) to explore the notion of architecture via the prism of inventive interventions within the urban context. Throughout the eight week period, frequent research trips, reviews, events, lectures and workshops will take place. At the end of the period the final exhibition of the winning projects will be presented as a result of the architecture residency program. 

Until May 31, 2015, Architecture Ukraine holds an open-call for its potential participants. IZOLYATSIA is now accepting proposals from architects, artists, data visualizers and scientists desiring to explore the notion of architecture through the prism of inventive interventions. The project seeks to gather an international mix of creative individuals, ready to collaborate on new ways of ‘living’ in the 21st century.

At the IZOLYATSIA pavilion will be also presented The Architectonic Self-service exposition, the project of a design group named YAD.
