Sweco has been involved in the Humanitarian Response followed by the Russian attack of Ukraine. The “Nooddorpen” assignment is a roadmap for the construction of new accommodations for the Ukrainian displaced population. BUUR together with Buildings division has been working in the assessment tools for the selection of the locations and the Masterplans of the camps. The roadmap and Masterplans propose different scenarios according to the evolution of the humanitarian crisis, the needs of the Ukrainian population and the technical requirements.
The concept of the Masterplan is based on an aggregation system and it can be adapted and scaled up: The “Living Unit” is the basic unit of aggregation and accommodated the living units based on containers; the “Cluster” is the smallest aggregation of living units and the “Village” is the aggregation of Clusters. This system generates as well different degrees of public spaces and facilities with different qualities of privacy and openness.
The proposal of BUUR tries to realize a healing and resilience camp by emphasizing the capacity of the collective spaces as social spaces and spaces of appropriation. They also aim to be spaces of pleasure, imagination and hope for the displaced Ukrainian population.
