The residential area of Sykhiv is the largest centrally planned district of Lviv that started developing after active post-war industrialization. The planning ideas of working population with the clear-cut structure, a system of public services, and recreation areas designed by Lviv architects in the 1960-70s were not fully implemented. That is why Sykhiv is in the process of active transformation and keeps acquiring new functions and meanings. At the presentation, we shall be re-interpreting the space of the neighbourhood and its perception within the city structure when contexts change.
