For architect Oksana Savchuk, walking helps us to bring body, mind and space together. In the workshop Trip Down Memory Lane Savchuk challenges you to visualise your latest or daily route from memory. Give your memory free rein and record your recollections in the way you prefer. Describe them in an exciting text, record them with your old camera, or visualise them with your favourite brushes. In the end all the contributions will be specially collated as a zine to bring them together in a collective magazine as a single memory.
Oksana Savchuk (1990) grew up mostly on Thursdays, which traditionally were literature reading days in the Ukrainian town of Ivano-Frankivsk. Following her bachelor degree in architecture, she got a MSc in Sustainable Urban Management at Malmö University (SE) and a MSc in Architecture from the University of Leuven (BE). In her thesis she explored the potential of walking as a design method in the rurban area to the north of Brussels. Currently Oksana is working in the Rotterdam-based architecture studio Sputnik and is a founder of the non-periodical zine XYZ. Oksana is Member of Het Nieuwe Instituut.
