Architect from Lviv - architectural workshop SYMMETRY.
After studying in Estonia and working in Finland at Lahdelma & Mahlamäki Architects I began to appreciate the fact that I am now here in Ukraine. Foreign experience is undoubtedly extremely valuable and necessary. However, it's important to return back home, because here are a lot of things to get inspired from, a lot of directions to move forward and what to change for the better.
When designing I consider that the main factors in the formation of space are genius loci - the spirit of the place, as well as the lesser known genius saeculum - the spirit of time. Each building should correspond to the epoch when it was created. Otherwise, it will devalue previous architectural achievements.
