Event Details

ZODIAK Warsaw Pavilion of Architecture is returning to the map of Warsaw as one of the elements of the new center of Warsaw. The Zodiak building was originally designed by prof. arch. Jan Bogusławski and arch. Bohdan Gniewiewski. Opened in 1968, it was an example of Warsaw architecture of post-war modernism. The main task of the designers of the reconstruction of the pavilion (Kalata Architekci) was to extract the most valuable elements of the original project, complementing and adapting it to contemporary needs and technologies.

What was the process of creation of ZODIAK Warsaw Pavilion of Architecture? How should we approach the modernization of objects that are examples of post-war modernism?
