Custom thumbnail for Ukrainian Architecture video presentation

Join Professor Stephen Rugare, College of Architecture and Environmental Design, Kent State University, in an exploration of the rich – and sometimes conflicting – traditions of Ukrainian architecture, including Soviet-era modern architecture in a nation embracing Ukrainization.

Tragically, much of this architecturally and culturally significant built environment has been damaged or destroyed, or is under imminent threat of loss.

This presentation, Ukrainian Architecture: Pride of Place In a Nation Under Siege, (YouTube) was delivered on Sunday, January 8, 2023, at the Lakewood Public Library.

This presentation was part of a larger omnibus program, Dear Ukraine: A Global Community Poem and Celebration of Ukrainian Poetry, Literature and Culture,sponsored by the Lakewood Public Library; the Ukrainian Museum-Archives Cleveland; and Kent State University’s Wick Poetry Center, School of Peace and Conflict Studies, and College of Architecture and Environmental Design.
