Polish architects about the inclusive common space


autor: Agata Koziej


In 2015 and 2016 Development Policy Foundation implements a 2-year project “Genuine common space: interventions of young Polish architects for inclusive culture” in Georgia, with financial support of the Polish Ministry of Culture and National Heritage.

The project is implemented under the the programme "Promotion of Polish culture abroad 2016" together with Georgian partners: Temi Community and Departament of Architecture in Georgian Technical University, Tbilisi.

Amongs our partners we also have the best young architectural studios: +48, Maciej Siuda, Budcud, Kamil Kwietowicz, Karol Żurawski, awarded with several Polish and international prizes. They will share their experience and philosophy of design.

The project promotes Polish architectural concepts and formula engaging citizens in discussions on the availability and quality of the space, but it’s a pretext to discuss the quality of public space, and the accessibility and adaptation to the needs of children, elders and people with desabilities in Georgia.

We will organize architectural workshops for Georgian students "Soeas+y / Young European design" tackling the issue of social inclusion and the promotion of cultural participation of people with desabilities. Lecturers together with the participants will propose and implement intervention in the public space of Gremi. Its beneficiaries will be those excluded from participation in culture: the elderly, children, people with disabilities.

For summarising the workshops and realised intervention, an open debate will be organized at the Georgian Technical University in Tbilisi. During the conference, young Polish architects will present their “philosophy of work”  within the context of creation of inclusive space and the best projects fitting to this model.

You will find more information about the project implementation here: About the project:
