What's in trends in Warsaw - fashionable Powiśle district | IN MY LENS



This time when in Warsaw I decided to see it from another side. I saw famous Neon Museum and then I visited the most fashionable district, where you can probably meet all of the Warsaw hipsters, Powiśle district, just next to Vistula River.

Some of the neons in Warsaw are fortunately still on where they originally belong! Above and below - great architecture of Warsaw Powiśle train station, from 1964-66. These buildings, recently renovated, are in specific modern style that was popular in cold-war era. Look at the dynamic shape of the concrete roofing below, isn't it stunning?

Above, below - a building I wanted to see for a long time - Library of Warsaw University by architect Marek Budzyński. On the roof of the building there is a beautiful garden - you have there panoramic view of the Old Town and Vistula River.

I bumped upon an interesting store, full of good Polish Design - Product Placement. Below - two chairs of a Polish architect and designer Oskar Zieta. "The stools are made from hydro-formed metal; two sheets of metal are welded together following the outline of the stool, which is then filled with fluid under pressure. The legs of the stool are then bent into place, creating a form that Zieta likens to inflatable furniture." - as Dezeen says.

In Powiśle district everything has good design.


Below - a very nice place to spend time in Kafka cafe. I enjoyed my coffee sitting on the lawn belonging to the cafe. I also really likes the interior - proving that you don't have to spend a lot of money to create an interesting space. The clouds covering the ceiling are charming, aren't they?

Gardens around Copernicus Science Center. The concrete bench is stunning - do you agree on that? Plus it's fabulously comfortable!

Copernicus Science Center is built at the Vistula river bank. There are plenty of places around to sit down and relax, on Saturday it was quite crowdy here.

Copernicus Science Center's toilets and concrete counter top. If you follow me on Instagram you know I like taking pictures of well-designed public toilets ;)


 P.S. What do you think of such big photographs in my layout, it's better or worse? :-)
