Of course, good fortune has survived a lot of modernist monuments of architecture and industry. But during the next decades they have been covered with the layers of dirt and damaged by an awry operation.
When we see how the public space was shaped before the outbreak of the WW2 and care was taken to detail, the quality of the buildings, at a high level of a design, it can be seen that how much we still need to catch up.
Some Warsaw houses from the 1930's are still not repaired until today and are in a better condition than buildings built 10 years ago. look at the quality of plaster, excellent details, good quality of all materials.
Communism destroyed technical and quality requirements, early capitalism perpetuate the good practices and only recently we can observe the improvement of the quality of all aspects.

I noticed that on some photos above a few persons/objects was artificially blurred (Microsoft Paint probably). Have you got any idea WHY that was done?
