kolaż: False Mirror Office

Malgorzata TOMCZAK


Moments after the world was closed to all of us, we decided to change our publishing plans a bit and face the blight and the threat it brings to our architectural field.

And so you hold in your hands an issue in which we analyze what happened and look for hope for a better tomorrow. In the e-issue we release the content - everyone will be able to read how the situation is assessed and what they see as the chances for the future by, among others: Prof. Jerzy Hausner, Zuzanna Skalska, architects from False Mirror Office, Marlena Happach. We also gave voice to our Polish architects. The hashtag and keynote of the issue - stay home - inspired us to show interesting Polish homes, after all, it is in homes and apartments that we have been focusing all our life activity lately.


Will we be able to create a "wonderful new world" on the ruins of the old one? What lessons will we learn from the time when we were all forced into lockdown mode? One thing is for sure, it won't be easy, but there is hope that maybe we can use this time to design the future better, more consciously and with respect for our planet.
