CUCS GUEST LECTURE TOPIC: “The Shape of Provincial Modernity: Political, Ideological and Transitory in the Architecture of Lviv’s New Train Terminal (1901-1904)

This lecture explores architecture of the new main train terminal built in Lviv in 1901-1904. Lviv was the capital of Austria-Hungary’s
largest province, from which the majority of Ukrainian emigrants to Canada came. Decoding terminal’s design we will trace connections
between architecture and conflicting claims to the city and its future, informed by equally contradictory interpretations of modernity and its implications.
