Utilizing the Public Square in a Multifaceted Way: the Winning Design for the 2013 “Changing the Face” Competition, Warsaw | Promotion of Place | Scoop.it

Poland-based Gowinsiuta Studio has won “Changing the Face 2013 Rotunda Warsaw,” an annual design competition  in its 13th year, with the challenge to revamp the “sawtooth-topped Rotunda, a favorite landmark and meeting spot in central Warsaw.”

The studio’s proposal, entitled Modern Urban Oasis / Warsaw City Lounge, transforms the Rotunda into an integral part of a public square. 


According to the architects, “the public square is utilized in a multifaceted way – meeting the key needs of the people that are present there at any given time, depending on the purpose and duration of their visit to the Warsaw City Lounge. All zones are designed so as to form a coherent and efficiently-utilized space while remaining in mutually non-invasive relations."
