Four teams of experts have presented their visions for the regeneration of Mariupol once it is back in Ukrainian hands. All agreed that the city’s future lies in its “unfolding” towards the sea. The creation of new recreation areas on the shore and the overall increase in the waterfront area will lead to the sustainable development of the new economy.
According to the architects, an important component is also the construction of fundamentally new residential neighbourhoods and the de-sovietisation of infrastructure. The next stage will be the combination of the best proposals to create a detailed urban masterplan for Mariupol.
The four experts were:
- Fulco Treffers, a Dutch expert and co-founder of the Ro3Kvit urban coalition
- Viktor Zotov, founder of the CANactions educational platform and head of the Zotov&Co architectural bureau
- Ukrainian architects Yana Buchatska and Anna Kamyshan, with urbanist Serhiy Rodionov
- Victoria Titova, director of the BigCityLab urban bureau
The concepts were commissioned by Mariupol Reborn, the largest urban revival project in Europe since the Second World War, is being run by the team of Mariupol Mayor Vadym Boichenko on behalf of Pavlo Kyrylenko, Head of the Donetsk Regional Military Administration.
