Kyiv Passage can be reconstructed. Researchers of "Agenty zmіn" (Agents of changes) urban space presented several solutions on how to turn it into a public space.
Kyiv Passage was opened in 1914. Because of the First World War, the Passage was never completed. Only in 1955, after the Second World War the Soviet government finally reconstructed it. "Agenty Zmіn" believe that the main problem of this location is that the Passage is not a final destination, people don’t come there, but pass by and there are no elements of public space.

For a successful transformation of the Passage, you need to adhere to several principles. First of all, you need to equalize the pedestrian and roadway, you need to develop a unique design code with the requirements and recommendations for the location. The organization proposes to use a flexible space constructor. It can be transformed to the needs of the season or a specific event with the help of mobile outdoor furniture.
