Architecture overview: Poland
Is Warsaw the new Berlin? It’s certainly experiencing the sort of construction boom that hit the German capital in the 1990s. Warsaw hasn’t seen this much activity since it was rebuilt in just six years after WWII, when, as the centre of the resistance movement, it had been virtually flattened. Now, skyscrapers and more lowly edifices are sprouting up all over the city, with overseas architects and local players making their mark.
To accompany our overview of Poland’s architecture scene in this month’s (September 2008) issue of Wallpaper*, here on wallpaper.com we’ve put together a gallery of new builds that are reshaping the country.
