The usual nonsense there.

Jeanneret, Pniewski and Gropius would laugh at you.

Oh?

Jeanneret had strong ties to Zionists, had Jewish friends and contemporaries, and was commissioned work by the Jewish community.

Pniewski collaborated with the communist government to ensure his comfortable livelihood (while true patriotic Poles were hauled off to soviet gulags never to see Poland again) and was commissioned to design the eyesore Jewish theatre in Warsaw.

Gropius went on to marry a Jewish woman.

So like I said: kosher approved.

What kind of strange and unhealthy obsession is this?

Free speech is a strange and unhealthy obsession for you?

OK boomer. Just don't ever call yourself Polish.

Rubbish, boy. Good that you had to google those three giants.

The usual kind, from people who never see daylight and can't get laid.

Pniewski, btw, was in a very modest way, a genius. So was Kurylowicz, who I had the privilege to meet quite a few times.

google those three giants.

Their biographies and legacies are common knowledge for those like me who are in the know.

It very evident now that it was you who needed google in a failed attempt to try and disprove me. :)

Pure comedy from someone who's never even been to the continent they lived on.

There's some first class architecture in Poland from te period 48 to 89. a shame (for you not us) that you'll never see it.

Ad hom as usual from the British peanut gallery because you have nothing constructive to contribute especially when your lefty narrative is challenged and you become startled to the core.

So I'll take things back on topic.

Another poster rightfully pointed out that modernist architecture saw its ascendancy during the communist era. You admitted in response to this other poster that these blots on the landscape were not limited to just Poland.

I constructively added to the discussion as to why modernist architecture came about and who either designed it or who it largely catered to (i.e., those whose superstitious beliefs eschewed rich, inspiring, traditional designs which either continued, honored, or complimented local customs and preferences).

If you have some other explanation as to why modernist architecture got a stranglehold in Poland then by all means make your case. Otherwise find another topic.

I wonder why he thinks modernism in architecture is exclusive to Communist societies.

Because he's a complete ignoramus :-D Now - said she emphatically, crossing her arms over her pinnie and settling herself more comfortably against the garden wall - I'm no expert on architecture BUT...............modernism wasn't just confined to architecture and the whole modernist movement in the arts long pre-dates Communism and all those old Bolshies. Modernism has its roots in the late Victorian era.

Yes. lol, why didn`t you quote my full words? Here you are, so that you don`t forget about them next time: when you see you have lost a debate, you resort to lies. Apart from being a Kremlin troll, you are a mental and moral loser, told you many times. You can`t lose with dignity.:):)

It isn`t a myth that certain complex products were extremely expensive for average Poles. E..g, cars. If one had a car in 1960s, 70s or even 80s, they were considered wealthy.

E.g, average pay in late 1970s was about 5000 PLN. The smallest car, Baby Fiat, cost 87.000 at a state price. However, to buy it from the state one needed a special voucher. Without it, one had to visit an open air market where a Baby Fiat cost 120.000 plus.

Imagine how long one had to save to afford a simple car.

I drove Baby Fiat in early 1980s. I knew a few books about it by heart. With pro publications, I was able to pull out the engine to repair the clutch.

^wow it was translated in Bulgarian. I liked the 125p bigger brother more though. But Poles themselves could create good original design - Nysa vans are so cool! And they made a nice-looking 3-box sedan out of a 30s/40s design (the Warszawa sedan). That was a huge feat.

Yes, bigger and more comfortable, whenever I sat on its back seat, I couldn`t cease admiring its softness.
