After the eager industrialization of the Soviet Union came to a rest in the 90s, working class areas in Lviv are filled with empty factory buildings causing a sense of urban blight. Jam Factory is a revitalization project aiming at offering new cultural life to a historic factory building in the district of Pidzamchè. But the project risks pushing the local people out through gentrification, if necessary measures are not taking into consideration.
Lviv is a colourful city and the buildings are no different. All over Lviv you will find eye catching murals painted directly on the walls. The word “mural” originates from the Latin word “murus”, meaning “wall”.
