Expected to be completed by 2022, The Museum of Modern Art Warsaw and the TR Warszawa Theatre will put in place a new art hub for Warsaw, Poland. The two new cultural entities will add a modern vibe to the rich heritage of the city. Designed by the New York-based studio Thomas Phifer and Partners, the new center of the arts will occupy a 22-acre site. The project is located at the base of the Palace of Culture and Science in Defilad Square, bordered by Marszalkoska Street to the east and a revitalized Park Świętokrzyski to the north. With similar features, the buildings are simple monochrome volumes with a single material on their façades. Even with relatable characteristics, each building is an autonomous institution on its own with its individual identity. The forum, a common exterior space between the two structures, creates a “communicating space for collaborative activities”.
