In February we invite you to Poznan. It has changed a lot recently. Every time I visit this city, the scale of transformation of the urban fabric there and the construction of successive layers of urban identity impress me greatly. The Old Brewery, the Bałtyk office building, the Raczynski Library, the ICHOT Poznań Gate, Pixel, the Aula Nova of the Academy of Music in Poznań, the Za Bramką office building with pregnant lamps, Garbary, Jeżyce, the area around Lake Malta, the increasingly noticeable localism and polycentricity have transformed the capital of Wielkopolska and given it a unique character. At the same time, Poznań also has Wolne Tory, more than 100 hectares in the city center, from which it still does not know how to create a modern model district.

In February's A&B, Mateusz Zmyślony takes a tour of Poznań in his Wielomiasta series, while Kuba Głaz sums up what has succeeded and failed in Poznań recently. We talk to architects and ask them about the city's development. There is still a lot to do, fix and improve, but I am convinced that Poznań is an interesting and liveable city. I like to go back there. I'll be back there at the beginning of February on the occasion of BUDMA trade fair (come to our debate!). I'm sure I'll also find time for a walk and a coffee in my favorite pub in Jeżyce.

We recommend Poznań and encourage you to read more!
