Educational projects

Our educational activities help to promote our values, to find like-minded people & also inspire us to come up with new ideas. We do not simply share theoretical knowledge & our experience but teach to put it into practice & to create real objects

Constructing playgrounds with architects

In 2019, Daria Bychkova taught a 4-weeks course on Raw Nature architecture as part of the Master in Advanced Ecological Buildings program at the Institute for Advanced Architecture of Catalonia (IAAC). As a result 18 architects from 10 countries built natural 10-metres climbing frame in Collserola Park in Barcelona. In 2017 in Vladivostok, we organized a workshop for students who then designed a kids play zone in the park.

Constructing architectural objects with children

One of Chekharda's ongoing activities is organizing of construction camps for kids. In 2018-2019, in cooperation with the Seekers kids club, we projected and constructed a life-size lighthouse on the shore of the Moscow river by Nikolina Gora village, as well as a playground around it. Together with the kids we also created a play zone for the “Green School” in Gorki Park, Moscow. At these camps, children learn to analyze space, take into consideration multiple details, master handwork, feel responsibility for their decisions, and deliver tangible results. We give kids a unique opportunity to create real structures that will be used for many years instead of building mock-up facilities from degradable materials. After taking part in the construction camp, the kids help us to maintain and renovate their playgrounds.
