The NEZLAMNI National Rehabilitation Center project, development of a new prototype of temporary housing for forcibly displaced persons and establishment of cultural buildings in the city.
These topics were discussed today by the Mayor of Lviv, Andriy Sadovy, and the eminent Japanese architect Shigeru Ban, who recently visited Lviv.
The press service of the LMR informs about this, writes dailylviv.com.
The mayor greeted the guest and told him about the current situation in Lviv, and also presented the project of the National Rehabilitation Center NEZLAMNI.
“Cooperation with you will broaden our horizons. The Rehabilitation Center is very important for our future and I look forward to working with you. I hope you will rediscover Ukraine for yourself and leave your mark in Lviv .
We will keep you informed of our architectural competitions. Your participation will be a great honor for us,” said Andriy Sadovy.
And so, within the framework of the meeting, they discussed the implementation in Lviv of a new prototype of temporary housing for forcibly displaced persons, in particular, using Styrofoam material for insulation. It is known that such a prototype is currently being developed in Poland with the Japanese representative office, and therefore they plan to deliver it to Lviv in order to implement a new method of housing construction.
The city is also considering several locations where, according to Shigeru Ban’s idea, it would be possible to set up temporary art objects.
The Japanese architect left an entry in the book of honored guests of Lviv.
“I look forward to working with you and your people to help rebuild social spaces for citizens,” Shigeru Ban wrote.
Shigeru Ban is the winner of the 2014 Pritzker Prize, which is equivalent to the Nobel Prize, but in architecture. In his works, the developer often uses cheap materials: paper, bamboo, fabric. The famous architect also designs housing for people who have found themselves without a roof over their heads.
