Contemporary Architecture in Warsaw exhibit in Daley Library

The Daley Library is hosting the traveling exhibit Contemporary Architecture in Warsaw, from November 6 - December 11, 2009.

Beginning in 1989, Warsaw experienced an intense period of design and construction of retail, commercial and residential buildings. Changing conditions within Poland and the availability of investment capital transformed the face of the capital city. The number of projects invigorated creative architectural design, and the buildings sparked wide interest and varying reactions of respect, admiration, and controversy.

The 20 buildings featured in this exhibit are among those that received awards in various competitions, many by the "Life in Architecture" competition, organized jointly by the city authorities and the editors of Architektura Murator, a leading architectural journal. Some were financed by public funding, some with private support.

The exhibit was organized by the Consulate General of the Republic of Poland in Chicago under the direction of Mr. Mariusz Gbiorczyk, Polish Consul.

Exhibit panels are on display on the first and second floors of the Daley Library. Visitors can see the exhibit all hours the Library is open., field_56ba6f8fdb00c
