Most modern infills aren't that bad, I really like the deconstructionist one.

2011 Restoration Retrospective ( A Selection)

Some recent restorations suggest a trend towards a simplified classicism. During the process of restoration, the rich decoration of pre-war buildings is generally not being restored, but lines of vertical and horizontal articulation are used to heighten their underlying classicism. Fans of pre-war Warsaw are appalled generally, but others appreciate how these buildings harmonize with socialist realism (and it's underlying classicism) and modernism that defined so much of post-war Warsaw, and the socialist realist accent with which most of the old town was rebuilt. Along with these, many stunning pre-war modern buildings are being restored, something Warsaw is truly blessed with and that were spared destruction largely.

Anyway, you be the judge:

Looks like Hotel Saski will be a stunner when unveiled

Great updates. The restoration work looks quite good to me and color goes a long way in revitilization. I am satisfied.

A Varsóvia pré-guerra era belíssima. Hj reconstruiram muita coisa, mas sem o charme da velha Varsóvia.

Wow, that trailer gave me goosebumps. Can't wait to see the city my ancestors lived in up until they dissappeared under the rubble in the 1940's. How long will this film be and where will it debut? Would love to get the DVD. Once again, truly amazing!

Probably film will be about 1 h long, but I'm not sure and we don't know where will be debut because they do this for their own money and still don't have any sponsors, even city of Warsaw doesn't want fund it...

A haunting image of post-war Warsaw showing the disintegration of the old Warsaw and the imposition of a new ideology:
