There's no single mininimalist building in Warsaw - commercial, residential, governmental or any other. (and thats why i asked the question).
I didn't make any confusion between minimalism and functionalism,or any other style.A cold building can be of any style in my opinion.If in your opinion the cold ones are the minimalistic buildings,than that's you and not me.
And give me the beer man.I want a good polish beer and a vodka too!

ya i have to agree with u, i dont really care if its minimalism or functionalism. One can argue that there is no minimalism or whatever but the point is that the buildings still look like shit and it is a fact.

Agree with you about the first one. It has a similar architectural style as the winner project but is soooooo much better.

I didn't make the point about cold buildings, you did. To me, a cold building is one without central heating and i wouldn't use this term in relation to design.

I'm just saying that in my city there's no building like this one, because 70% of what there is are pseudo-corbusier'ian blocks, 15% is international style and the rest are remains of Polish classicism, pre-war functionalism and some other styles including bit of soc-realism.

..and be careful with that vodka

My favourite is this one from Norway.



As some guys already said before, they've chosen the worst possible project.

This sucks for you guys. Is there a possibility that they will change their minds on the winning design?

Hey, I think the winner cheated! He copied the design of the Wal Mart near my house!

IMO this historic city should have a beautiful building in a traditional style.

It is traditional style (minimalizm) if by "traditional" you mean old but the city is not very historic...

OMG what a disaster. I fear for the people of warsaw - it seems that city planners and the judges have lost all grip on reality and public opinion.
I couldn't like this project even you paid me.

I fav design is the one from Norway - I think the curves would've complemented Zloty Tarasz nicely and given the city a very modern feeling -
