About the Programme

After being in the air, passengers arrive at the linear road that brings them to the thousand-year-old capital. It is a departure road and the route to say goodbye. What memories should the passengers bring with them from this journey, from this last road before the clouds? In addition, for some of them, it is the first impression, the first way to discover Kyiv and Ukraine. What is the feeling we want our visitors to have? This ordinary road connects Kyiv with its suburban neighborhoods and is different from any other routes. Businesspersons travel along it every day on their way to the airport. This strategic road offers a true perspective of the Kyiv area: From the Boryspil airport to the historical center, along with the forest filled with pine trees, the excessive Pozniaky neighborhood, the Dnipro River and green hills. The workshop will start from the subjective analysis of Kyiv and the road from the Boryspil International Airport to the city. After the visit to the site, participants will develop a concept. The rendering, in the form of a model, will highlight a diversity of concepts and enrich the reflection on the concept of landscape. During 5-days workshop participants will have the opportunity to explore this path, embrace or transform it. Curators: Bruno Tanant is a co-founder of TN +, a landscape designer, graduate student and teacher at the l'Ecole Nationale Supérieure du Paysage in Versailles, a visiting teacher of architectural schools in Paris, Leoni and Grenoble.
