The main idea of the Multi-functional Pavilions by Aleksander Wadas is to create public spaces with social functions like culture, recreation, sports. They would be built with temporary pavilions of minor scale that can be easily fitted in the existing urban tissue, would have light components and could be mobile . They could be places where people could take some fitness exercises, take part in workshops or expositions or just rest. More images and project description after the break.

Slowacklego Street is one of the most busy and congested streets in Gdansk. It connects the ringroad of Gdansk with one of the central districts-Wrzeszcz. Due to communication problems, there is going to be a new fastroad instead of the old Slowacklego Street. It will solve the congestion problem, but it will divide the area into two separate parts and can lead to a decline in pedestrian activity, lack of street life attractions, and a downgrade of public space, which is why a design like this would be beneficial for the area.
