Kyiv is a city with a very rich history behind it. Being one of the city’s three historical nuclei, the area of Kyiv-Pechersk Lavra is beyond doubt, one of the places where history has had the strongest impact on the built environment. The design proposal for the site masterplan aims to reflect upon the multiplicity of “historical layers” that made the area what it is today, but also to make them present and visible. The design approach also aims to anchor the proposed buildings with some of the most important buildings and structures present on the area - the Ramparts, the Bell Tower and the Old Arsenal Building.
