It's pretty common here in Poland. We have alot of great projects in architectural competitions, but usually they choose some s**tty one. And here is the perfect example.

We don't have many buildings in this interesting style, practically none in Warsaw although I'm not sure it can be really called "Brutalism" facade of this wall might be not so "brutal" at all anyway I like the idea, it's rather interesting and should make big impression in reality bigger than another organic blob like those we see in China etc.

here you can see the location in google maps:

I like this project. It provides order to its surroundings, a very nice garden for strolling at intermissions and events while defining the street edge and above all the auditoreum is sublime where I hope as much attention is paid to acoustics as design. I have seen building like Gehry's Disney Centre that are pretty interesting and sculptural but not all buildings can be self-referential landmarks like that one. This building has a context and just needs to reimnforce it. The final design will show all

The problem with these types of competitions is that all the designs are so good that you'd like to build most of them!

Finally some news


From EurobuildCEE:


Quote:
Warsaw city hall has dusted off a project to reconstruct the historic Sinfonia Varsovia concert hall, making funds available for the project.

The project for the Sinfonia Varsovia European Music Centre was put aside immediately after a competition to choose the concept for the scheme was won by Thomas Pucher in 2010. Now the city has earmarked over PLN 279 mln for this purpose and included it in its Long-Term Financial Prospect 2015–2042. “The construction of the Sinfonia Varsovia European Music Centre fits in with our revitalisation programme until 2022, which is a process involving a number projects the city will be investing more than PLN 1 bln in. Taking account of the current state of historic buildings occupied by the Orchestra, we considered it our priority to carry out a thorough and comprehensive revitalisation of the most degraded sections,” Wasraw mayor Hanna Gronkiewicz-Waltz as announced. “We hope the scheme will be co-financed from European funds, because this guarantees better provision of cultural and national heritage infrastructure,” she added. The city is planning to apply for the funds under the Infrastructure and Environment Programme 2014-2020.

Warsaw purchased the home of the Orchestra at ul. Grochowska 272 in the city’s Praga-South [Praga Południe] district in 2009. A new cultural centre is now to be developed ion the site. Its focal point will be the Sinfonia Varsovia Orchestra, for the performance of classical music and other forms of art (theatre, film, painting, photography and sculpture) as well as for recreation (a multimedia library, cafés, etc). The entire project is now du to be completed in 2020.


From sinfoniavarsovia.org

Quote:
A press conference was held on Wednesday, 4 March at the City Office of the Capital City of Warsaw at 3/5 Bankowy Square to discuss the project for a concert hall and architectural development of the property at 272 Grochowska Street for the Sinfonia Varsovia Orchestra.

Sinfonia Varsovia – a grand renewal project begins

Construction of the Sinfonia Varsovia European Music Centre is part of a process of renewal of historical buildings and structures. Considering the scale of the project and its importance for the development of the right-bank part of Warsaw, it was placed on the list of priorities of the renewal programme.


The Praga district is a place of world-class historic and cultural merit. It has been undergoing a process of change for the past few years. The city’s cultural investment projects, including the construction of Warsaw’s Praga Museum and renewal of the Powszechny Theatre have had an impact on this change. The city now faces its next project – modernisation of the historical buildings at 272 Grochowska Street for the Sinfonia Varsovia Orchestra and the construction of the Sinfonia Varsovia European Music Centre.

The City will earmark funds in its Long-Term Financial Forecast for the “Modernisation of historical buildings and construction of a concert hall at Grochowska Street for the needs of the Sinfonia Varsovia Orchestra”. The total amount designated for this project is PLN 279 700 000.

"The construction of the Sinfonia Varsovia European Music Centre is part of the renewal

programme until the year 2022. It is a process encompassing a number of actions for which the City will designate an amount of more than one billion złotys. Considering the current state of the historical buildings on the Orchestra’s property, we have deemed it a priority to perform an in-depth, comprehensive renewal of their most deteriorated parts" – said President of Warsaw Hanna Gronkiewicz–Waltz. "We hope to finance this project partially from European funds, as its delivery guarantees better availability of cultural and cultural heritage infrastructure."

Project History
In 2009, the Capital City of Warsaw purchased the property at 272 Grochowska Street. The main objective of this action was to provide an area for the construction of a concert hall and a home for a local authority-governed cultural institution.

In 2010 an architectural competition was held for the “Design of a concert hall and Architectural Development of the Property at 272 Grochowska Street in Warsaw”. Two years later President Hanna Gronkiewicz-Waltz signed a letter of intent with the winner of the competition, Thomas Pucher. In the letter, the city declared support for the delivery of the project under favourable economic circumstances.

Sinfonia Varsovia European Music Centre
Focused around the Sinfonia Varsovia Orchestra, the Grochowska location will become the new cultural centre for Warsaw. Not only will it be an attractive venue to present classical music and other art forms (theatre, film, painting, photography, sculpture), it will also be a leisure facility (multi-media library, cafés, restaurants etc.). The Orchestra’s headquarters will become an important centre for discussion of major cultural events. Thomas Pucher’s winning entry will be one of the many other changes occurring on the city’s right bank. It will become one of the most interesting locations in the City’s cultural landscape.
