Ewa Haładyj

author biographical note degree piece

My degree piece consists in a proposal for a temporal exhibition dedicated to not implemented architectural and urban design projects from the interwar period in Warsaw, when very ambitious plans for modernisation of the city were developed, and a coherent vision of “monumental Warsaw” was created. I wanted to show the individual projects as parts of a larger whole, and include their evolution into the context of social and political change. Creation of a deliberate exhibition scenario required a deep analysis of an extensive, yet interesting and surprisingly current subject.

Spatial solutions at the exhibition are a kind of synthesis of my research. A major challenge was the choice of the means to express the scale of presented solutions. I wanted to make my exhibition not only a background for exhibits, but also a stimulant for imagination and catalyst for discussion on architecture in Warsaw and possible directions for its development.
