Childhood In The Making

Childhood In The Making is a project to humanize the space of a post soviet orphanage in a small town in Russia. We're a community of architects, students, and locals with a mission to provide kids with opportunities for self-development and growth. Using crowdfunding to transform the amenities we aim to change how kids feel about themselves, but also how they interact with fellow citizens. The community playground hosts one of the most important local sports events. It has become a new anchor on the town's social map, breaking the stigma around visiting the orphanage's premises.The purpose of the space is to form valuable social bonds.
