Concept

The co-authors of the project are Mateusz Chodorowski
and Mateusz Wojcieszek.

The subject of the competition was a conceptual design
of the local cultural centre Twórcza Twarda in Warsaw. 
The plot dedicated for the investment is located in Śródmieście district. The location is special due to its rich history and a combination of various architectural traces
in one area.

The proposal for Twórcza Twarda respects the spatial and historical context. Architecture relates to the buildings around, those historical, modernistic as well as new skyscrapers. At the same time it refers to no longer existing architecture of the turn of XIX and XX century. The spatial arrangement of the past settlement consisted of big quarters of buildings with multiple courtyards. The project relates to the spatial solutions lost during II World War and is an interpretation of the dense XIX century architecture.
The whole building is treated as a single quarter filling
the plot. The heart of the project is a courtyard surrounded by the building of Twórcza Twarda.
