Metropolitan by Norman Foster. I would love Frank Gehry to design something for Warsaw.

I will answer your question :

De Gaulle was with the staff of General Maxime Weygand's military mission to Poland as an instructor of Polish Infantry during its war with Communist Russia (1919–1921). He distinguished himself in operations near the River Zbrucz and won the highest Polish military decoration, the Virtuti Militari.

He was promoted to Commandant in the Polish Army and offered a further career in Poland, but chose instead to return to France.

During his mission in Poland he lived on Nowy Świat Street (near the place where monument is erected today).

Thanks for this.
I'm always surprised to read how much historical ties Poland and France have had. Modern day French people probably don't even know this. Most think Maria Sklodowska- Curie and Chopin were really French
