“As someone who knows the Polish culture intimately, and lived under the strategy of Poland,  between the destruction by the Nazis and oppression under the Soviets, this building represents a new direction for Poland, east and west.

“It is a response to the destruction of Warsaw and post war Russian reconstruction.  The building offers a new light with its façade, its form, shape, a new profile form which a new skyline of Warsaw can be read.  This is not another corporate building that keeps Warsaw as a tabularasa.  It is a building that embraces the aspirations of Warsaw and is mindful of its economic circumstances.  The eastern face of the building is sculpted by the path of the sun to provide required day light to surrounding buildings.  It is a unique building shaped by Warsaw’s history and its light.  This building will address a major shift in major cities around the world, where residential buildings will emerge as the most striking designs.

“The building illuminates Warsaw through its sculpural form and structure.  Its facade and volume shape a new profile on the skyline.  The building embraces the complex history of the site and the aspirations of Warsaw.  It is a unique building shaped by Warsaw’s soul and light.”
