Archivibe join the international community as many architecture firms in solidarity with the Ukrainian people. We condemns all acts of violence, injustice and oppression.
MVRDV stated “Until recently, we walked the streets that are now a war zone. Our heartfelt sympathy and thoughts are with the people of Ukraine. We are thinking about our friends, partners, and clients that are in danger at this moment. We support our colleagues who are worried about their country and their loved ones. We stand in solidarity with all the people who are defying and protesting against this war, and we strongly condemn the violence. As architects and urbanists, we work in many countries to make a difference and we believe wholeheartedly in international dialogue and in peace. For this reason, we have immediately stopped our involvement in projects in Russia until further notice.” Read our full statement on their website: https://lnkd.in/ddTarR43
