Nevertheless, the residency workshop period is that of a collective effort. The residency will be hosted in IZOLYATSIA's site in Kyiv, but throughout the eight-week period, frequent research trips, reviews, events, lectures and workshops will take place. The data collected and analysed will reveal and define the scope of the proposals. Participants are asked to take a step back, study and gather data on the makeup of the urban conurbation and to investigate an aspect of social ‘fabric’ or ‘phenomena’. Careful examination of all of the layers will reveal the immense complexity of an urban system. The residency program provides the logistical framework in partnership with educational and cultural establishments. Understanding the context in a holistic way provides the necessary setting for an unexpected positive ‘thought shift’. The final proposals or systems shall be built or established through classical or digital fabrication methods. The applicants are asked to submit a project proposal based on one or more of the keywords in the context of ‘architecture’ and the site, together with a data visualization concept for the study idea.
