Stor Palace, Kabul, Afghanistan (Palace) (built: 1880)

Originally a one-storey pavilion, the Stor Palace largely escaped the destruction of other historical structures in Afghanistan. Nevertheless, the building was left neglected before being restored by the Indian government and the Aga Khan Trust for Culture. Restoration works were completed in August 2016.

Great to see something happens in Afghan places, finally again. Too much destruction for much too long.


Regarding Lodz, great improvements in the city. Though they need to renovate more old buildings in high quality. And somehow the city's layout is a bit strange, it doesn't have such a recognisable central area. They need to highlight the busiest areas even more, by using proper urban furniture (historical lamps, shops signs, ...), cobblestone streets, etc.

Warsaw (Poland)

Hala Koszyki now open

before :



now :













POLAND one hundred and ten years after the launch of its construction in 1906, Hala Koszyki has now returned to Warsaw.

The official opening of the hall took place on October 21st. The investor, Griffin Real Estate, has mixed the culinary and cultural worlds under one roof in the revitalised interior of the historic market hall. Hala Targowa Koszyki, which was once called Bazar Ludowy, was built in 1906-1908 on ul. Koszykowa in Warsaw on the site of the former Koszyki residence.

In subsequent years the hall continued to be used as a city market. The building now includes 18 restaurants, 11 grocery stores, one of which is Bazar Koszyki, a pharmacy, a book store and a home decoration centre. Hala Koszyki was modelled on European market and restaurant halls such as Foodhallen in Amsterdam, Mathallen in Oslo, San Lorenzo in Florence and Mercade da Ribeira in Lisbon.

Unlike most Polish cities Lodz does not have a rynek. There is a kind of ersatz postwar recreation of a rynek next to the Manufaktura complex. Having explored the city a fair bit, the natural centre is currently the linear Piotrkowska Street, which is similar to Ramblas Regal in Barcelona...and this street terminates in what will be a major new urban square, Plac Wolnosci



But I think the area around the new multi-modal transit centre will become a huge node with the EC1 centre next door and soon to be built City Gate development and adjacent park.

Royal Opera House, Mumbai, India (building) (built:1911-1912)

Inaugurated by King George V, the Mumbai Royal Opera House became a social center for the city's monied classes. However, the venue did not fare well during the post-colonial cinema era and was officially closed during the 1980's. Despite this, a restoration team began putting the opera house back together and the venue finally reopened it's doors just yesterday.
