Owing to circumstances relating to the epidemic and the decision of the Government Crisis Management Team to temporarily close cultural institutions, we would like to inform you that the Institute of Architecture Documentation at the Silesian Library is transferring some of its business to remote work.
Professor Ewa Chojecka, with her usual intuitiveness and masterful precision, again touches upon an important and, to date, unexplored topic. She identifies that between the post-war period and the present day, despite all manner of adversity, new sacred buildings – Evangelical churches – have been built in Upper Silesia, mainly in Cieszyn Silesia.
As part of the ‘Architectural Triad’ series, we cordially invite you to three meetings with Dr Jacek Kamiński. The theme of the lectures concerns the twentieth-century urban plans of the town of Rybnik, presented against a background of the broad social, political and economic context of their creation and implementation.
This project presents profiles of the following architects: Stanisław Niemczyk, Marek and Ewa Dziekoński, Jerzy Witeczek, Janusz and Bożena Włodarczyk, all representatives of post-war architecture in Upper Silesia, and also architect Tadeusz Barucki – art historian and documentarian – who sets out the achievements of world architecture of that period.
