WARSAW UNDER CONSTRUCTION 5

  • Large-scale designs

The interwar urban planning is a large-scale phenomenon, carried out with the use of small-scale plans.

The semantic dissonance, rooted in the diverse meanings of the scale, becomes an idiosyncratic essence of the overall vision of the city. Before the lecture, I take on the task of presenting those urban plans of interwar Warsaw, which became a reference point for the development of the vision of the capital city, and which later “consumed” the vision, sometimes in quite an unexpected manner. The narrative about the urban cartography of the 1930s is based, inter alia, on the reference to the notion of image timeliness – what is out of date, and what is up to date, and finally, what has been updated? What, why and how?
