Katowice modernist paper cut-outs
_
 
New series of paper cut-out models representing 1960-80s modernist and brutalist architecture of Katowice, capital of Upper Silesian Industrial Region (Poland). The series features: iconic buildings to be found in the city centre (Spodek, Superjednostka), a charactersitic star-shaped estate (Osiedle Gwiazdy), prefab panel blocks from the outskirts (Osiedle Odrodzenia, currently under thermo-modernization), as well as the controversial brutalist building of Katowice railway station demolished in 2011. To celebrate the unique character of Katowice, we also include a bonus of a post-industrial "Katowice" pit-shaft. The collection is made up of six illustrated models to assemble and exhibits all kinds of original details present on the buildings` facades. The whole set is printed on recycled paper, and includes a short technical note on the architects, year of construction and exact location of each building.
 
The collection takes us on a tour around the iconic post-industrial conurbation wich remains a unique hub of socialist modernist architecture in central Europe.
