The workshop is conceived as a center for dialogue, perhaps a collaborative studio to realize and use the cultural potential rooted or hidden in the city. The studio worked on the sites across the proposed green corridor connecting a big housing estate Sykhiv with a number of public facilities and green areas and the city center of Lviv. The Green Line project was initiated by the Department of Architecture and Urbanistics of Lviv city council and supported by GIZ in Lviv. Also, Group 109 was invited to make a research of the route.
“UFO” (NEHA korde, NISHANT modi, SHRISH jaiswal, PRAKRITI mehta) is a group of four young architects from 4 different but distinct regions from India. The group started the collaboration last year in 2017 where we started conducting a series of workshops for students and professionals in Bombay (now Mumbai).
