Project: Cultural and Educational complex, MA diploma
Odessa State Academy of Civil Engineering and Architecture
Year: 2011  
This MA project was completed within one year and consists of research and graphic work. The aim of the research work was to determine architecture and planning structure of a new type of public spaces for Ukraine - Cultural and Educational Complex. 
In the past decade, cultural and educational activities are increasingly developing in Ukraine. Odessa is undergoing urban transformation which includes the restoration and refurbishment of existing buildings, construction of new public squares and reconceptualization of public urban areas.
Cultural and Educational Complex is located in Odessa, Ukraine, on M.Zhvanetski boulevard which is a continuation of the Primorsy Boulevard, on the steep slope overlooking beautiful Odessa Seaport panorama. 
The Complex is conceived as an extension of The Odessa Fine Arts Museum and together they are to create an inviting public space flexible enough to accommodate cultural events and to be an excellent public square area for recreation. It will serve as a continuation of the pedestrian route, which now finishes at the end of the Prymorski boulevard for many people. 
Both, Odessa Fine Arts Museum and new Cultural and Educational Complex, are to combine historical and contemporary art of the country. This complex aims to enrich everyday lives of its surrounding community and attract millions of visitors from around the world.
The main concept of the Cultural and Educational Complex was to create a shape that will be both in physical and visual harmony with the surroundings.
The building is designed as a compact object, with an adaption to the landscape, punctuated to its center by a courtyard that spans top three levels of the complex. The courtyard is arranged as an amphitheater, which can be used as an open-air theatre or sculpture garden. In the design of landscape were I used existing sculptures, such as Zaha Hadid sculptures. 
Main entrance to the complex is the entrance from M.Zhvanetski boulevard.  There is also an entrance from the lower level of the boulevard. Lower level of M.Zhvanetski boulevard as well as the upper level, starts at the Odessa municipality.
The complex consists of eight functional zones combined into a single volume.  Five of them are public: public area zone, exhibition, education/seminar, concert hall, food hall zones, whereas the others secure an access to the staff: research/academic, administration, storage and garages zones. 
The circular shape of the Culture and Educational center enables a flexible division of the exhibition zone into different shapes and sizes, creating a unique framework for the art.

Project: School of Art, BA diploma
Odessa State Academy of Civil Engineering and Architecture
Year: 2009

This project is a specialist school for visual and performing arts. Vocal, painting, dancing, art of photography and sculpture are studied in the School of Art. The School of Arts is located in Ukraine, in the picturesque area of Odessa on Dacha Kovalevskogo street. One of the largest parks of Odessa and the Black Sea shore is close to the site.  This location is intended to positively affect the creative process that takes place in the School.
This BA project was completed within 2 months. There is no doubt that the existence of schools of arts is incredibly important for Ukraine now as one of the methods to improve intellectual and cultural level of the population by inclusion to the art. 
The design strategy creates two visually connected strata, a space for public communication and a space for a private creative process. This strategy divides the school in two main areas. The courtyard space houses lounge, and an area for evening artistic performances. 
 ually. Numerous glass facades and a pond that surrounds the school and reflects the environment were used for this purpose. In winter, the pond can serve as a skating rink. Against white and glass exterior of the school the interiors are full of colors and light, that represents an active and productive creative process inside the school. Numerous window escarpments painted in various bright colors complement this.
The complex consists of seven functional zones. The idea to make these areas solitary and independent had impact on the architectural shape of the building. The building’s simple plan beguiles intricately arranged internal spaces. 
The School of Art is a three-storey building with a large terrace on the roof level and a two-storey high courtyard on the ground floor.
The plan organization supports maximum community use.  Various spaces for public communication, such as exhibition spaces, auditorium, library, cafeteria and roof terrace can be accessed directly from outside and have independent mechanical systems, bathroom facilities allowing independent use. 
At roof level, cafeteria zone is arranged around a big roof terrace offering an outdoor meeting/teaching space. 
Educational zone facilities are private, without public access and are also independent in use. Large windows on the north facade cross-ventilate the workshops and give the best possible lighting for the building.
