Between 2 October 2014 and 4 January 2015 the Museum of Modern Art in Warsaw will host a unique exhibition devoted to the Polish contemporary architecture. The event will be organised by „Architektura-Murator” monthly magazine in celebration of its twentieth anniversary. The model of the Multifuncional Concert Hall Jordanki will be presented on the exhibition among of mock-ups of 25 distinguished post-1989 architectural realizations.
The summary of these 20 years has motivated journal’s team to take a special challenge – to create a collection of best architectural realizations. This collection, prepared in collaboration with the Museum of Modern Art in Warsaw, displays models of buildings that were crucial for altering the ways of thinking about architecture in Poland; that set new trends and built a solid base for special moments in history; that left others behind in terms of excellence and that bear witness of the times.
The collection, prepared to celebrate the 25th anniversary of the 1989 political transformation and the 20th anniversary of Architektura-Murator monthly magazine, will show the significance of architecture for the Polish transformation: not only its important social, economic and cultural role, but also its significance as an element of identification and its worthiness in the process of creating the image of Poland abroad.
The collection will include mock-ups of well-known and frequently awarded buildings constructed in Poland in the last 25 years: Museum of the History of Polish Jews in Warsaw, New Silesian Museum, Museum of Tadeusz Kantor in Krakow, Scientific Information Centre and Academic Library in Katowice. What is more, visitors will have a chance to see the model of the Multifuncional Concert Hall Jodanki of the eminent foreign architect – Fernando Menis.
After two months’ exposure in the centre of the city, in the main exhibition hall of the Museum, the Architektura-Murator’s collection will become a property of the Museum of Modern Art, adding up to other invaluable cultural objects.
