Alissa Ban’kovskaya, founder of SYNCHRO SPACE:
«When people think about our cities of the future, they believe that these cities will be built by someone unattainable and distant. Basically, we use solutions that were created before us. And expect changes from mayors, architects, and anyone else. But in this case, we remain only consumers – inhabitants. I propose to become creators now and to determine what our cities will be and how we will live in them.»
For this purpose, SYNCHRO SPACE was founded in 2018.
