WARSAW | The Prudential | U/C

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Prudent...ding_in_Warsaw

Prudential is a Warsaw skyscraper built between 1931 and 1934 in the Art Deco style as the base for British Prudential Insurance. It is located on Warsaw Uprising Square along ulica Świętokrzyska (Holy Cross Street).
At the time of construction it was the second tallest European skyscraper with eighteen stories. Built using a steel framework it was the tallest building in Warsaw until the Palace of Culture and Science was constructed. The Prudential was heavily damaged during the World War II, particularly during the Warsaw Uprising when it was hit by approximately 1,000 missiles leaving only the steel framework..
The building was rebuilt after the war as a hotel, and its style was changed from early modern to neo-classical.

In the renderrings it looks like the top of this buildings detail will change (the columns) to look simpler. Is this true?

Yes, teh building will be brought back to something much closer to its original appearance from 1934 (comapre to the first photo). The columns were buiilt during "reconstruction" after WW2 damage.

^ Well, to be honest, the pod zone is not changing to the better. The street facade to Świętokrzyska is totally neglected IMHO. Really a pity, I liked it:

A very interesting project indeed, I have to say that i like the building's original art deco design as opposed to the neo classical refurbishment, i am glad it is being rebuilt to the original form, it looks very stylish.

Ripping up lots of walls in this reconstruction, so the plan probably consists of ripping up anything that was added to its exterior look in its post-WWII reconstruction, stripping the building to its steel skeleton, and adding the pre-WWII facade.

Saint Seiya

I love Saint Seiya
Six years before the events at the focus of the series, one hundred orphans from Japan are sent to different parts of the world to become legendary warriors known as "Saints", who are the soldiers under the command of Greek goddess Athena. These warriors are under the protection of a celestial constellation.
The power of the Saints originates from the understanding of the nature of the "Cosmo", an inner spiritual essence, originated in the Big Bang. The concept of the "Cosmo" advocates that each atom within a human body resembles a small solar system, and since the human body consists of billions of atoms, the totality forms a "small Cosmo" or a "small Universe". Each person's Cosmo has its own unique signature. The Saints take the knowledge of the Cosmo to the next level: since humans are composed of atoms, humans should be able to use the mysterious forces behind the atoms to achieve super human feats.
The story focuses on one of these orphans named Seiya. He is sent to the Sanctuary in Greece to become the Pegasus Saint. After six years, Seiya becomes the Pegasus Saint and returns to Japan to find his older sister. Because his sister disappeared the same day Seiya went to the Sanctuary, Saori Kido, the granddaughter of the person who sent all the orphans to train, makes a deal with him to go to fight in a tournament called the Galaxian Wars, where the orphans who survived and became Bronze Saints must fight to win the most powerful Cloth: The Sagittarius Gold Cloth. If Seiya goes to compete there and wins, Saori would start a search to find Seiya's sister.
During the series, Seiya becomes the partner and friend of other Bronze Saints: Shun, Shiryu, Ikki, and Hyoga. As the myth of the Saints, they must fight together to protect the reincarnation of the goddess Athena from any danger, as their predecessors have during millennia...

I don't agree. I'm glad that they restore this old lady to its original shape and style.
The neo-classical elements were nothing more than kitch.
