Libeskind finished russian domination in Warsaw

THE BEST SKYSCRAPER IN EUROPA is in WARSAW NOW!

Thank You Mr.Libeskind that You designed for us in Warsaw your fantasy tower which is a bit covering that ugliest Stalin's communistic "gift" ---> Palace of Culture.

awesome!

Libeskind said:

Quote:
Daniel Libeskind : I wanted to design a building that in Warsaw , because I know this area of my childhood . Such a big city like Warsaw deserves to be renewed in reference to its history. I have lived in post-war Poland , in the shadow of communism and the reality of my imagination challenge was to create a new icon reborn city. Warsaw is certainly one of the most interesting cities in Europe , but it lacks impressive , extraordinary buildings it deserves . This is an opportunity to create a paradigm of sophisticated urban living in the XXI century on the basis of unique neighborhoods and open new horizons of Warsaw.

How prepared are you for the design . How many times were you in Warsaw , as you pointed out in the city?

They have helped me in this my Polish roots , knowledge , culture and understanding of the transformation of Warsaw. One of the most important aspects of building in Warsaw is the unique spirit of the city and its ambitions to create a great European capital .

The apartment Gold 44 is quite original shape. What was the inspiration for its creation ?

The form of the building corresponds to the urban light, proportions and space , and its shape resembles wings of an eagle , the symbol and emblem of Polish .

Some Polish architects believe that your project enhances existing architectural chaos in this part of town . What do you think of these opinions and the architecture of Warsaw?

This project is intended to be a milestone in the quest to enhance the architectural city. Is to contribute to his recovery , combining cultural activities and commercial residential functions . I am convinced that a place that will live 24 hours a day, will be the key to the secret life of the city. It is natural that the city is evolving with the change of lifestyle and changes in architecture. This building is introduced just such a positive change .

What do you think of the opinion that the project is another step that will make them like the center of Warsaw to Singapore ? Is Warsaw the capital actually looks Asian ?

Warsaw is a beautiful and poetic city. This building will provide a unique contribution to the image of the city , and its design is specially designed for Warsaw. It embraces its unique character and enrich the landscape rapidly developing city .

What if the service reject architectural design or bid gopoprawiać . Sir Norman Foster had a great " transition ", creating the Metropolitan . His vision was not accepted without comment .

I am an optimist . Open approach to change , while necessary caution , it is - as soot - the essential characteristics of our project. Therefore we do not expect that there are any problems . I'm an architect , who successfully cooperates with the authorities and citizens of the cities where designs .

However, if the investment does not receive the building , whether this particular project can stand elsewhere in Warsaw , or Poland , and if so, where ?

As I mentioned, this project prepared especially for Warsaw and do not take into account other place . Investor - Orco Property Group - Polish legislation complies in every respect and is able to provide the authorities with all necessary information. So I'm optimistic and I'm confident that we will move to the work as soon as we get the necessary permits .

Thank You Mr.Libeskind:!:

@Skyline.Fan


The summit was supposed to be a high-rise building project more slender but for some reason it was reduced. As noticed in the render is better because the sharper the tip. Right now is cut off.
Pity

No it wasn't. The render used a shifted view angle. It is built as it was designed from the very beginning. Shame that you are telling such lies here when you are representing Warsaw... You are rude to the Palace of Culture but in the same time you are saying that Zlota 44 is so great when in reality you have no idea about this project at all...

Again...
