'In the past, the very core of the Stadium was the top tier, where the most attractive commodities were sold, and which produced the urban legends and myths that sustained the daily press. When on 30 September 2007 the top tier was closed, the traders moved to the 'Aeroplane', a sandy square between trams tracks and a bus station. After the announcement of the construction of a National Stadium, only rubbish remained in the terrain facing Waszyngtona Square, and the area along Grochowska and Zieleniecka streets became a dense network of stalls. The outcome assumed an interesting form of high, linked constrictions made out of brown-grey pressed metal and metal sheet, with plastic foil and canvas carefully attached to this skeleton. Every day, this structure offered commodities, which filled assorted gaps and eliminated shortages. (...) The Stadium has already experienced several agonies. Perhaps one should define its death as a process? One thing is certain: no one is capable of halting it'.
