116e/8 Ślężna Street, Wroclaw, Poland
We are a group of friends working in different architectural studios (Mackow Pracownia Projektowa, Major Architekci, Ch+ Architekci) based in Wroclaw, Poland. Together we are taking part in architectural competitions: Special Acknowledgment in Garden Cities for Tomorrow, London (2013); 1 Prize in Ideal Theatre Design Competition (2012). Our latest project, a book about Jan Szpakowicz - forgotten architect from Warsaw is going to be published in 2019.

Strategy, Program, Protection of Cultural Heritage on the example of Wrocław commercial and service pavilions as parts of housing estates from the turn of the 60/70s.
Catalogue of pavillions in order to: show their potential before they start to disappear from the city; to preserve their original shape (structure, form, unique detail), to compile possible functional program for upcoming years and present different scenarios for potential tenants and developers.

  • Practical problems

Idea is based on 3 goals: cultural heritage, functional programs, visual identification. In Poland, a protection strategy for modern buildings is still being built. The major problem is the lack of the monument status difficult to obtain for post-war buildings. Pavilions on the background of e.g. modern cultural objects may seem less important, that is why so far in Wroclaw most of them have remained intact. Protecting such objects demonstrates the real essence of modernism and emphasizes the role of urban planning – centers where the community could meet were always present in the program of modern housing estates. Creating functional programs can revive a sense of collectivity and accelerate the development of services outside city center. The tradition of Polish lettering and graphics: famous neons and shops signs interwoven with architecture was and still is very unique in Wroclaw. It could help fight the excessive amount of advertisements on windows and unveil the architecture.
