MetadataShow full item record
References to the spatial context based on the traditional elements of architectural composition like scale, proportions, rythm, colour, etc. are usually visible and easy to define by the people not related professionally to architecture. However in the contemporary architecture designers often reject classical canons of the composition, simultaneously emphasizing the reference to the spatial context. In this elaboration author describes and analyze the indirect references to the surrounding areas of three modern buildings which were designed and opened in Warsaw over last two years: Copernicus Science Centre, Museum of the History of Polish Jews, and ‘Vitkac’ department store.
