On the occasion of the UEFA European Football Championships in 2012, which Ukraine is staging jointly with Poland, the rebuilding of the Olympic Stadium for the final game has been realized.
The new design for the reconstruction of the stadium respects the historic fabric with its important filigree prestressed concrete upper tier built in 1968, the frame of the new roof structure being detached and placed clear of the existing bowl. This most distinctive feature is therefore being encased in a new filigree glass façade and will be duly illuminated with appropriate lighting.

Working on the Project we tried to prove to client and to ourselves that concrete could be warm, wood could be smooth and metal could be soft. The project itself was a top floor 3-level penthouse with total space of 380sq.m., located in the heart of Kyiv on a Dnieperriver. Third floor of the apartment comprised an open terrace facing Kyiv left bank panorama on a south-east with total space of 250sq.m.

Game without rules
The most rewarding for a designer is – to make home for himself. What you will create, there you will live. Without censorship.
Sergei Makhno had left the workshop, where he both lived and worked (see Archidea, September 2009), and with his wife Vlada, for cases exclusively creative, moved here, in his new \”Parisian\” apartment. The apartment, actually, is in Kiev – but only geographically. Light negligence with which paintings are placed – hung, a bold combination of colors, the French panels, and uncovered artistry in the pseudo-classic’s entourage – immediately evoke images of the bohemian studios of Latin Quarter. However, to break stereotypes – is Makhno style. It is time to discard all complex and simply accept – in Ukraine we can do even more interesting and brighter design. Playing with textures, materials and color in his projects, Sergei constantly breaks the rules – he can put parquetry on the walls, or make «Tetris» game on the ceiling, from ordinary fluorescent lamps.

This project sets out not to create one park, but many great parks. Given the shear scale of the project the idea is not to create a singular grand vision, but to create a framework for thinking about the idea of a park that is intrinsically related to how to successfully implement the park over time. In reality, most parks are composed of a series of separate spaces that are somehow bound together. This design embraces that reality and showcases it. This diverse set of spaces combined with the four binding elements, shown raw, gives the park its distinct identity.

As part of a park competition in Kiev – Ukraine, Maxwan resolved a missing gap in the primary pedestrian path. The solution goes beyond merely creating a bridge. It strives to create a signature place, within the park. It avoids any of the assumed formal or structural gestures. By doing so, it creates an almost non-bridge.
