Oleg Drozdov, the co-founder of Ro3kvit: Urban Coalition for Ukraine, talks about the new challenges in Ukraine with the Ukrainian Week Magazine: "We understood that we need to create a new agenda for spatial development because Ukraine is changing. Ro3kvit is a response to the broader, larger challenges that architecture will face in the near future. The idea was to combine Ukrainian expertise and very professional international expertise in order to start developing certain professional relationships, to form a certain agenda together, to understand how to build joint methodologies designed for Ukraine. The thing is, we will lack local expertise for reconstruction, and the war and the new geopolitical configuration require new approaches."
