Since the Russian attack in February 2022, the Ukrainian capital has been in the international spotlight: However, Kyiv is not only the administrative and political center of Ukraine, but also a place where the complex and diverse history of the country becomes particularly visible. Semen Shyrochyn has been documenting the architecture of his home city for many years – and is committed to preserving buildings threatened with demolition. During the event he´ll give an insight into his latest book: a bilingual architectural guide (English/Ukrainian), which presents 100 striking buildings from the past 100 years – from avant-garde residential complexes to imposing Stalin-era palaces and iconic designs of Soviet modernism to the most significant building projects that have been built since Ukraine gained independence in 1991.
