Museum of Polish History

Museum pro­posal pro­ceeds from the desire to make con­nec­tions at mul­ti­ple lev­els: urban­is­ti­cally, with respect to the Park and Cas­tle, and exper­i­men­tally, through the Museum’s spa­tial schema. This schema takes its for­mal logic from inter­pret­ing the shift­ing bound­aries over time of the Pol­ish Nation. The Heart Space acts as an orga­ni­za­tional void within the build­ing, trans­lat­ing the phys­i­cal trans­for­ma­tions of the Pol­ish ter­ri­to­r­ial expe­ri­ence through his­tory. Three Dimen­sional Space-Time Map­ping of shift­ing Pol­ish Ter­ri­tory across the centuries-produced by loft­ing map out­lines together-becomes orga­ni­za­tional space of the Museum: the Heart Space.
