It was damaged in the WW2, one corner of the building collapsed, but it could easily be restored





instead it was transformed into this

= Central Europe.

I like his architecture very much too, especially one of his best works (IMO) is located in Prague - Church of the Sacred Hearth (1928-1933). One of the most interesting churches I've ever seen..

Upper Silesia has a lot of 20s and 30s modern architecture but sadly most of it is scruffy thanks to the communist era with its commieblocks.


Between 1920 and 1939 Polish part of Upper Silesia had an autonomy and the most important agencies was a Voivode and the Parliament. The Parliament was finished in 1929 after four-years build. The building has got over 6 km of corridors, 634 rooms and is the biggest building in Poland after Warsaw's Palace of Culture and Science.



The Silesian Parliament in the background:





The other building built by the Autonomous Silesian Region was Silesian Museum. Between wars, agglomeration was divided into two pieces: German and Polish. Each country started a propaganda challenge where building were very important - there wasn't anything strange when a house was in Poland and the street was German. Germans built the Upper Silesian Museum in Bytom (Beuthen O/S) and Poles build the Silesian Museum in Katowice. Sadly, it was finished in summer 1939 and in September this years Nazis came and demolish it as a "monument of Polish and Jewish conceit". The building hosted many then-hightech features like air conditioning and modern central heating, photocell operated escalators etc.



Still the same neighbourhood:









Soon I will post more.

As I know the building got its name after some cafe named "Albanija" which used to be at this place. It wasn't actually Albanian..

Albanian building?? lol

The building is named Albania after a famous cafe that was located on the same spot.

Actually the official name of the building was "Palata hipotekarno-trgovackog fonda " but even before it was completed people called it Palace Albania.
