In September, the Centre of Contemporary Art “Znaki Czasu” in Toruń is staging an exhibition of the collection of scale models “Architektura-murator” for the Museum of Modern Art in Warsaw, featuring the most important buildings erected in Poland after 1989.
In 2014, twenty-five scale models representing the best Polish buildings of the last 25 years were constructed to celebrate the twentieth anniversary of Architektura-murator – the leading magazine devoted to contemporary architecture in Poland. Having been exhibited at the Museum of Modern Art, the models were added to the collection of the museum. They constitute a unique set on the national scale.
Describing the realizations contained in the Warsaw collection as “breakthrough” achievements of Polish architecture, the exhibition emphasizes the significant position of architecture in the transformation of political system. Represented buildings frequently caused changes in the approach to architecture in Poland, they set new trends, stood out from the rest and became records of the dynamics of history.
