Are they going to remove that communist relic (palace kultury) or not? That thing in the background looks just...awful.

it'll take the prize from Złotte Tarasy for the most kitch building in post communist poland ;) (award and survey given and done in £ódsz) don't remember when exactly - Oct-Nov at some designer's fair.

Slick, I agree with you that the pałac is not the prettiest building in all the world, but this thing is worse!

But variety is the spice of life. Ask many people what they think of modern architecture and they turn their noses up, but somewhere like London, they build the gherkin (Swiss Rey tower) and amongst all the old and the new buildings in the skyline, it fits in perfectly and it didn't take very long at all for it to become loved and cherished. As long as the old and the new can stand side by side without disrupting eachother, it's all good.

True, but do you think the above monstrosity is going to fit nicely without disrupting the rest? It will dwarf everything else around, not only the Pałac!

Złotte Tarasy

Beside the train station in Warszawa? I have looked at it through Google Maps / Google earth, and wondered "WTF?"

maybe you are right I just wanted to present how it looks ...

Personaly I like "stary browar" in Poznan ;) It is considered as the most bueautiful tradecenter of mid size all over the world.

I have to go there tomorow and buy sth for Chrismasts ;)

These skyscrapers look intersting, but having watched Superbad last week I think some ideas from the movie would be great!
I'm sure tourism in Warsaw would skyrocket :)

i agree - stary browar tries to fit in with the rest of the old-world charm in Poznań - and succeeds 100%

Sea Towers in Gdynia

Saw them under construction this past summer. Clearly visible from the dock where the battleship is anchored. Apparently, condo units are quite expensive in those towers...

Ok but these are pictures from large cities such as Warszawa, Wroclaw, Poznan, what about the country side? Nothing has changed there. No sign of modernization. :(

you know some time ago only Warszawa was developing ... now other big towns joined (Poznan, Wrocław. Krakow, Gdansk, Gdynia even Lodz) so we are going in good direction ... and in smaller towns progres is noticable as well

I think you would like it to be true ... but sory it isnt ...

Skyscraper in every village ?

You are right but Poland needs a lot more investments if we want to catch up with the western europe.
