They replaced some gritty but interesting buildings with this generic stuff that could be anywhere, lame.

I see it's cleaner now, but it's not like you couldn't clean this original futuristic-looking brutalist complex, it was made from concrete so it's not like it was falling apart or something and I'm sure it could look much better with some proper care. What happened with the former inhabitants anyway If they were just removed it's hardly a revitalization.

It was falling apart.

The old inhabitants now reside in the new development. A video on the ongoing transformation:

If they build something as bland as that they might as well have just restored the existing building. On a brighter note, Poland seems to be leading the way in Europe for urban renewal and redevelopment and most of the projects seem very good. Katowice for example is being transformed from a dreary depressing place to somewhere worth living and visiting. Congratulations Poland!

Nice thread,

Redevelopment of existing town or town planning before the development is very essential because it reduces the future problems. It increases the beauty of town.

All these renovations are remarkable.
Poland stands out as an example to follow, even if sometimes we agree, sometimes unexpected colors such as pink or green "pistachio".
Sorry for my bad English

Toutes ces rénovations sont remarquables.
La Pologne fait figure d'exemple ŕ suivre, męme si parfois, on en conviendra, les couleurs sont parfois inattendu, telle que le rose ou le vert "pistache".

Would have been nice if they painted those horizontal spaces in between the windows grey, to make them stand out more.

This is interwar modernist architecture, functionalism at It's purest and most visionary form. Uniform paint suit those buildings very well. Also, they are listed as monuments, so there is a big passibility that paint scheme was recreated from original project.

There are American train stations that could surely get this treatment.

Is the state of US train stations so bad then? Though it seems trains are less popular there whatsoever as well.
