Languages of publication
The presented book – To Build a Beautiful Warsaw – for a New Landscape of the Capital (1945-1956) – published in the W krainie PRL (In the Land of the People’s Republic of Poland) series, deals with the postwar reconstruction of Warsaw, with references to the social life of the period. The four articles which comprise the publication contain assorted visions of a new town, which the authors analyse upon the examples of a discussion on the form of rebuilding the Royal Castle, the history of the construction of the Palace of Culture and Science, and the private reconstruction of the town houses in the City. At the same time the book opens a separate series, announced by the publisher, relating to a town which suffered particularly painful blows by the war and postwar modernisation.
