The second day of the Architecture of The Future has started with a panel discussion titled “What real estate developers should learn from architects?”.
Panel Discussion has been held by Real Estate Development Companies: Andriy Vavrysh, CEO, SAGA Development; Vitalii Melnyk, CEO, UDP; Dariya Kukharenko, Commercial Director, A Development. The session has been moderated by Kyiv-based architect Dmytro Aranchii, founder of Dmytro Aranchii Architects.
The panelists discussed the values of architecture between Ukraine and the abroad in general. They stated that "Ukraine is a special case that follows a different technology, construction solutions, building prices and engineering solutions here, of course, there is an added value in architecture and construction industry but to answer the question of what we should expect from Ukranian architects, there is no one answer for this."
"We should say that it is also possible to bring a value in architecture by using subsequent tools, but developers and all the participants of architecture and the construction industry should look at other countries and the rest of the world at first."
"And then we should understand our first local sources and market, construction skills and prices as well," the panelists added. "We need to understand the core values of our industry and then we should respond the needs in local and global scale."
Regarding the emerging technologies and the new innovation tools, the panelists added that "we should also think about all these technologies advancements how we can embed them into our own infrastructure."
"Understanding of how this space will be used in our local environment is also another case to move forward because this is a matter of taste which is quite important in every aspect," they continued.
The panelists also discussed that "all the developers should visit international exhibitions, see other materials around the world, experience new technologies and tools to understand and test on how new models can be used in their local area."
"So all participants of this industry can understand better their role to bring functional solutions."
