Museum of Modern Art Warsaw Warszawa MoMA Warszawa MoMA

The idea of freedom is the symbolic message of the new Warsaw Museum of Modern Art.

The project is made up of two elements.

The Crystalline Container is an austere transparent parallelepiped protecting and revealing a strong dynamic space holding the many activities of the museum. The transparency of the “container” absorbs and renews the urban surroundings: The Marszalkowska Street and the Square dominated by a Stalinist-stile skyscraper, the tallest building in Warsaw and symbol of the Soviet oppression.

The large transparent cage seems hardly able to hold in two massive thunderbolts of free and overflowing forms, a metaphor for Polish untameable vitality.

The two Thunderbolts structures, which contain the specific museum activities shatter the immobility of the container; they break out towards the space outside; they both characterise and dispute the urban skyline.

The “Thunderbolts” create a spatial labyrinth of ever changing perspectives and colours.

The school building is part of the old christmas tree bauble factory in Milicz. One of the main goals in the projects was to maintain the continuation of the building’s history.
