It's a pity that, they don't rebuild is as a theater (maybe synagogue was too small?). Hope, that one day, they will rebuild it in other place

What I didn't like about the modern Gdansk is the lack of architectural integrity (fugly LOT building next to the beautiful Upland Gate, fugly Bus Station next to the amazing Main Station, etc.). Especially when you will compare Gdansk to Krakow. For me, it seems that pre-war architects were trying to keep everything in a certain style.

Bus Station


Main Station


PS. See tenement house design ideas (very nice ) from 1902:

PS2. And interesting work (hideous in my opinion ) of Bruno Bahr from 1920:

Polish post war modern architecture potentialy could be great, but its poorly unkeep and needs solid refurbishment.

with some updating and renovation, the new theatre would be quite special, but its not bad. anyone have pics of interior?

Gdansk had an Elizabethan theatre before it has a synagogue, I think the Shakespearean theatre will really breathe life into the old town.

The best interior has a Neptun Cinema complex. But not for long, though.

Now
I wouldn't call this building particularly simple though and it's covered in stone unlike the pre-war building with just some plasterwork imitating stonework etc. XIX century buildings used rather cheap mass-produced ornaments so it wasn't something particularly unique I guess.

nice, many cities wouldm love to have a theatre like this, I do believe it's better than the pre-war although modern in apperance. it's appearance is marred by the ubiquitous giant Polish banners - which I hate!

I'm just wondering why the modern architecture has to be the same in every EU country/city? If you will compare historical sites, you can easily see the difference between Gdansk and let's say Krakow...And with the modern architecture, just take a look below.

Belfast


Gdansk


Soon all cities will look the same

That's the reason why it's good to have some old architectural heritage, show the next generation of the world how they lived, and that every country or region has it's own culture, and it really hurts that they all built the same looking architectural bloopers like the already earlier mentioned Hilton Hotel is Gdansk....
Hope Gdansk will do some more reconstructions in the future, especially in the area of the St. Johanniskirche...

It looks much better that the Black Tower (Tour Noire) in Brussels, componed into hotel Novotel close to St. Katherine which is a tourist attraction, after all.

Pre-war architecture in Gdańsk was very similar to other Hanzetic cities and later to German cities so it's no surprise that it looks similar to other EU countries today. But if you move further east let's say to Ukraine you will find modern architecture looking very different:
