This is particularly visible in architecture:
the buildings and other structures are seen, designed and restored in a complex
way, in combination of different professions such as architecture, fine arts
and applied arts, and not only architects and artists, but often also
politicians, historians, public figures, industrialists and others take part in
this process. Later on, these buildings host important urban institutions and
become witnesses of diverse celebrations and events. Therefore one should also
research them in a complex way, as a join product of work by different layers
of the urban society. Using such an approach to academic research a personality
gets devoid of an abstraction of a surname while her or his biography, record
of her or his activity and the place of a particular monument become integral
parts of this history.
The aim of this project therefore is to make available
to a wider online audience the main data about the personalities who figure in
other projects of the Center. The data provided per each person consists of
main life dates, professional education, environment, life activities, places
of memory and bibliography.
The project is conducted by art historian Halyna Glembotska.
