still waiting for the plans to be produced by Christian Kerez - June is the last deadline and if he fails project will be shelved indefiinitely, he seems very inept and I think the scale of the project might be beyond his abilties...but let's hope he doesn't screw up Warsaw's chance to have a Museum of Modern Art.

Hmmmm..... let's hope he does screw up. His design was not creative enough for me.
I am sure there were other runner-ups with better designs. There were some interesting renders done a couple of years ago so I thought this project was a done deal.

Update: just learned today that this project will not be happening. The architect and the local authorities fell out of love.

What's going on with the church to the left? Are they rebuilding something on it? It was in the same condition last summer.

It's been a really long f*cking time. It was like that last summer. They should get on with it.

Maybe it's for the better, since the project wasn't great. I think Gehry should design a Museum of Modern Art for Warsaw.

Great news, last thing Warsaw needed was another cold slab of concrete in her core.

I totally agree, this location screams for Frank Gehry.

AFAIK it was due to lack of progress in project works. Warsaw authority wanted first to fain Kerez (over 1 mln PLN AFAIR) for the delay, but he refused to pay it, so finally the contract was cancelled.
Now Kerez is complaining, he says he became a scapegoat and will definitely keep off Warsaw in the nearest future. He says he was discriminated during last 5 years and doesn't believe in Polish justice system



I think Switzerland should boycott EURO 2012 in Warsaw

Well if he didn't perform up to expectations then can we blame the authorities for making him pay a penalty? I think not. By the way, was he ordered to modify the design somehow? What was taking him so long? But anyways, I don't think he's a great architect, so he won't be missed.

Or something by Norman Foster. I'm a big fan of his. I hope Frank and Norm are reading this.

It isn't that cut and dry, rychlik. The title to the plots of the square are not sorted out. Nothing will be built at this location until that happens. You are looking at another five years at least. Kerez got screwed and Warsaw got screwed out of a good building.
