  1. Well, renderings are nice… The problem is, that in Poland people show only renderings. No buildings at all, just – pictures. So poor …

  2. it’s not true, that in Poland people show only renderings – yes, it’s often, but fortunately not always. Currently, we build more :)

  3. I agree. Hana, that was an arrogant comment. I find it’s unfair that you can condemn the polish architects as ‘poor’.

  4. Without wanting to offend the specific architects, not the least Polish architecture (hana’s generalisation doesn’t help indeed), this type of architecture: sleek white/shiny/reflecting/geometric/clean-cut/james bond style edifices, that keeps reappearing and propagating through architecture media, always seem “out-of-place” and “out-of-time”, and lifeless to the point of becoming disturbing and disquieting.
