The architecture of the Marszałkowska Residential District (MDM) is provocative. One of the central urban planning project built right after World War II on the ruins of former Warsaw (in 1952, designed by Józef Sigalin and his team), similarly to the Palace of Culture, replacing a thick network of pre-Warsaw streets, has both fans and haters.
Now, it has become an icon of Warsaw and it’s worth wandering around here to check out the architectural details – the socio-realism mozaics, reliefs, interesting lettering. You can also contemplate on MDM and the beauty of Constitution Square from Aioli’s outdoor garden. We like to imagine how it would look without a giant parking lot in the middle and huge ads covering buildings.
