12 September 2023

Japanese architecture studio Shigeru Ban Architects, along with Voluntary Architects’ Network has presented designs for a new extension for a hospital in the western Ukrainian city of Lviv.

At the Lviv Urban Forum in late June this year attended by the city’s mayor and deputy mayor, Shigeru Ban, the 2014 winner of the prestigious Pritzker Architecture Prize, unveiled his proposal for the new hospital extension based on cross laminated timber (CLT) architecture.
