Top architects reshape Warsaw
10 July 2008

WARSAW, Poland (AP) - History beat Poland's capital to a pulp in the first half of the 20th century, then patched it up with blocs of communist concrete in the second.

Now, backed by a resurgent economy, Warsaw is shaking off its socialist architectural hangover and putting forward a bold new face of glistening skyscrapers designed by some of the world's top architects.

"After two generations of the grayness of communism, Warsaw has entered a really fantastic period of a renaissance and of a dynamic new architecture," said American architect Daniel Libeskind, who designed Berlin's landmark Jewish Museum and the master plan for New York's ground zero, during a recent visit.

And much of that new architecture is coming off the drawing boards of the world's master architects. Libeskind, Iraqi-born Zaha Hadid and Chicago-based Helmut Jahn have all designed soaring glass towers that aim to reshape a Warsaw skyline long dominated by the Stalinist-era Palace of Culture.

The wedding cakelike skyscraper, an unwanted "gift" from Soviet leader Josef Stalin to Poland, served as a constant reminder to Poles of their country's satellite status toward Moscow during the Cold War.

The imposing sandy-brown tower -- reminiscent of similar socialist-realist giants in Moscow -- rises 42 stories above broad avenues lined with monotonous apartment buildings, crumbling prewar tenements and now modern glass office buildings.

Warsaw's potential to build up in the heart of the city -- an option denied most European capitals packed with gothic churches, baroque palaces and fin-de-siecle townhouses -- stems from the capital's tragic history.

Around 85 percent of Warsaw was reduced to rubble during World War II, with most of the damage coming in pitched street battles during the 1943 Warsaw Ghetto Uprising and a year later between Polish insurgents and the Nazi occupiers in the Warsaw Uprising. After crushing the 1944 revolt, the Germans systematically dynamited most of the remaining buildings and shipped the surviving residents to concentration camps.

That painful episode now allows Warsaw to develop its downtown in ways Paris, Vienna, Austria, and Prague, Czech Republic -- crammed with historic buildings -- cannot.

"Other cities weren't destroyed, and that is their advantage, but also their limitation," said Tomasz Zemla, Warsaw's deputy director of architecture and planning. "We have a different, dramatic history, but that allows us to have a whole lot more freedom in building."

And the city aims to take advantage of it.

Mayor Hanna Gronkiewicz-Waltz, who took office in 2006, is leading the skyscraper charge in Warsaw, and has said she wants the city "to be a place where architects from across the world and Poland compete."

"The city has great potential, and a lot of land to build on in the center," she said. "Warsaw must grow up if it wants to compete with other big European cities."

A handful of high-rise hotels and office buildings have already popped up on the city's skyline since communism's fall in 1989, giving the once flat, drab city straddling the Vistula River a modern profile and providing company in the sky for the Palace of Culture.

But the real action is just getting started.

Developers have submitted some 30 new projects for high-rises in all, although city officials estimate that only five to 10 of them will be built. Among those in the pipeline is a 1,017-foot (310-meter) giant, which is only in the initial planning stages, that would be Europe's tallest building.

Workers have already broken ground on Libeskind's sweeping glass tower that is to rise 630 feet (192 meters), just short of the Palace of Culture across the street. The architect has described the design of the 54-story apartment building as one that takes Polish history into consideration -- evoking the Polish eagle with its royal crown, a national symbol denied Poland during the communist-era Cold War. It is slated to be finished by 2010.

Not to be outdone, Hadid's Lilium Tower project recently submitted papers for the London-based architect's 788 feet (240 meter) high residential building to rise also in the central business district. Narrow at its base, the futuristic -- almost cactuslike -- glass tower bows outward around the middle before tapering off again at its peak.

"It's not a mass produced square, but actually like a flower it grows around the edges," Hadid said while presenting plans for the building in Warsaw at the end of May.

And Chicago-based architect Helmut Jahn, who built Sony Center in Berlin and One Liberty Place in Philadelphia, will submit final plans for a 525-foot (160-meter) luxury apartment tower nearby.

On the adjacent plot, city hall is expected to give the green light to Poland's Jewish community to build a 680-foot (207-meter) sail-shaped skyscraper that would be attached to the Nozyk synagogue, the only one remaining from before the war.

Those projects bode well for the ambitions of the town as it looks to leave behind the drab, flat-faced structures forced on it over 45 years of communism and take its place among Europe's leading cities.

"There are many great architects already working in Warsaw," Libeskind said. "It promises well for the city that the ambitious want to contribute."
