    [ Białe -white; Falowce - wave shaped modernist blocks of flats in Przymorze district in Gdańsk ] - Project was a part of Streetwaves festival in Gdańsk. Monuments of Modernism in Poland, especially residential architecture is sharing a rather sad fate. Bad technical condition, awful colours are a common standard. This is even more saddening as there is a lot of very interesting buildings around the country that instead of being one of the magnets to visit are scaring people off. One of the examples are Falowce in Przymorze district in Gdańsk. Having studied here and now working they came into our focus. Presented photo manipulations are not supposed to be considered a finished project. It's rather an impression which is supposed to make people realise a hidden beauty of this architecture and provoke a discussion about its current state and future. Facades were cleaned from advertisements, illegal extensions and colours reduced to white in order to exaggerate exceptional geometry. http://studio-mania.com/?page_id=7 Read Less
