The team of architects from Lviv won the All-Ukrainian architectural competition for the best project solution for the restoration of the Kushnir Tower in Kamianets-Podilskyi, as reported by the Department of Architectural Design and Engineering at Lviv Polytechnic University.

The architects proposed to reconstruct the building with minimal intervention. Specifically, they plan to replace the roof with ceramic tiles and glaze the lost areas to emphasize restoration rather than complete reproduction.
