The defense of works will be held on November, 25 in the format of an architectural festival, within which frameworks the best teams in each category of the competition will defend their works before the jury.

Arricano offered the participants to develop on the land plot with the total square of 5,41 hectares a project of a residential complex with an expressive modern architecture, parking, an entrance group and improvement of the adjacent territory. Mykola Yakymenko, acting head of the development department, acting operating director of Arricano, is sure that this technical task will put before the participants many problems demanding a creative approach. “The peculiarity of our project is multitasking, - says Mr. Yakymenko. - When working on the competitive project, it is necessary to take into account the history of Pochaina River, the concept of the winner of the All-Ukrainian Architectural Closed Contest for a conceptual design of the revival of the river with a landscaping of the park of the same name.”

Steel Freedom is a project with a social focus: organizers and participating companies have an opportunity to influence the professional development, the professional career of future Ukrainian architects and to give profile specialists a nice start. After all, today's undergraduates tomorrow will become employees of these companies and will develop the industry. In Arricano we enjoy developing educational projects with students."
