Best Polish Architecture
In this section of the Architektura&Business portal, we remind you of the best Polish projects of the last decade published in the pages of our magazine. Architektura & Business is an architectural magazine that has been continuously covering topics related to architecture and urban planning, but also to industrial design, art and photography since 1992. Since its inception, the magazine's editors have combined an interdisciplinary approach with professional authorial discussion of the most important issues in the field of design.
Long, long ago...
The first issue of the monthly magazine "Architecture & Business" had 16 pages, including 8 color pages. Since then, almost 30 years have passed, and we have put into the hands of our readers more than 300 issues of the magazine (more and more colorful with each issue!). Their pages collect almost three decades of modern architectural history, changing trends, names of award-winning architects and timeless inspirations. Also addressed are, often still current, issues related to architecture, public space, greenery in cities and the architectural profession. Many of the objects presented in the pages of A&B have become icons of their cities and the time in which they were built.
What are the best Polish projects of the last decade?
In this section of the portal on architecture, we will remind you of the best projects completed in Poland in the last ten years. From the archives of A&B we pull material on objects that we think are worth recalling or rediscovering. For example, you will find a 2015 conversation between Maciek Kapołka and Andrzej Bulanda of Bulanda i Mucha Architekci studio on modernization of the Public Library on Koszykowa Street in Warsaw and 2016 material on the building of the weekly newspaper "Wiadomości Wrzesinskie" designed by Ultra Architects.
Thanks to a trip to the archives of A&B, we can assess the architecture emerging in Poland in the last decade from the perspective of time. To draw conclusions, draw inspiration and follow the changes taking place.
Polish architecture and Polish architects are becoming more and more successful on the international arena - they are winning successive nominations for the Mies van der Rohe Award. Mies van der Rohe Award and get noticed by foreign architectural organizations, such as Robert Konieczny, who joined the prestigious ranks of the French Academy of Architecture. In this section of the A&B portal, we want to show that we can be proud of Polish architecture and its creators.
