You're right this is actually a restoration, not a new construction. And yes, I will be posting on the Warsaw PRL site as well, there are lots of new ones here

I was wondering about you...hope you're having a good time and you'll have lots of pics to share on your thread or even mine...I just had some friends from Warsaw over for brunch on weekend and the things they told me about Warsaw's nightlife got me very excited...there is so much more beyond the old town, unfortunately it's well hidden

1685
1771 - modified to Rococco style by Szymon B. Żug
1944 - burned
1953 - rebuilt







Primates Palace
1673 - Jakub Fontana
1691 - Tylman van Gameren
Giovanni Battista Ceroni
1783 - Efraim Schroeger/Szymon Bogumil Żug
1939 - bombed

Warsaw Palaces - After Reconstruction

Warsaw's baroque, renaissance and neo-classical palaces and their often accompanying grandly gated courts-of-honour are a defining feature of historic Warsaw, unique in their sheer number and their beauty, most of which have survived until today owing to the painstaking work of craftsmen, builders and architects. I have shown many interiors so that when you visit Warsaw you will know that these are not just facades, but historic buildings recreated to the last detail. The millions of painstakingly handcrafted details are what lend historic Warsaw its authenticity as well as the salvaging and re-incorporation of any and all details and building elements including bricks from the vast piles of rubble that was post war Warsaw.

(Pictures taken just after reconstruction in most cases in the early 1960's)

Lovely! I wish we put half as much effort into restoring our older inner city neighborhoods as you put into yours!

Well in truth, Chadoh25, I think there is a cultural, social and political scale difference between post-war reconstruction and generally economic based revitalization. And I mean, the political reality, will and drive behind Warsaw was different back then too.

Having revisited Warsaw, the place has its own vibe and it's interesting to see it all play out in the context of it being a large, modern city. My only chagrin is the "transitional" architecture and experimental garbage built on the edges of what was part of the city's original 5 year reconstruction plan along ulica Dluga, Senatorska and elsewhere. It just looks terrible and takes away from the impact of the city's reconstruction (i.e. the three, huge apartments between al. Solidarnosci and ul. Dluga, hot tranny mess!)

I agree that's where the transitional idea fell apart and became urban fright drag - anti-urban posing and making a mockery of a rich urban heritage. The change was an ideological one and the exigencies of housing shortages and lack of resources to extend infrastructure outward caused indiscriminate densification along those streets, although the commie blockettes on Senatorska are in scale but the setbacks are ridiculous. venerable ancient grand Dluga is ok save for a couple of commie blocks...it will take a while to fix that. they should have taken the reconstruction to a natural edge like a major thoroughfares, park and other feature and not change the theme midway.

I agree, scale on Senatorska is ok - same for Dluga closer to the Old Town; there are a few hidden behind some trees and nicely renovated to fit into the older architecture but the ones closer to the arsenal are horrendous. Too bad, because it would have been great to integrate socialist-realism in these spots to "blend" the Old Town with Muranow. Ah well!

Thanks Rychlik, nice to see you back. That first sketch is known to me as the first panormaic rendering of what the post-war old town was to look like. It was done by an amazing visionary named Marek Krawczynski.

The other sketches I have never seen before....where did you find these?, would love to find more when I go this coming week and then post here. Amazing sketches, are they original? Feel free to add a few dollars worth of these my friend

btw, I will have Polish characters on all the names this week, sorry

Don't show these to Silesians, they might think the bricks are from [insert town in Lower Silesia]!

Yes, this seems to be the latest fad for bitching, but really the capital city and spiritual centre of the country has to be rebuilt. If Paris were demolished, I'm sure Provence would gladly send bricks to help rebuild

Oh mein Gott im Himmel, I've looked at the last 4 pages and so far I haven't seen ANY Silesians or anyone else for that matter complain about ANYTHING in this thread. So why are you bringing it up intervention? Can we PLEASE stay on topic.

P.S. My mother always said "If you don't have anything nice to say, don't say anything at all".
