Wola is a district in the west of Warsaw, formerly the village of Wielka Wola, that was incorporated into the city limits in in 1916. An industrial area with traditions reaching back to the early 19th century, it underwent a transformation into a commercial and residential district. It's these changes over the last 30 years that are captured in this exhibition - Przemiany. Krajobraz Woli po 1989 roku (ENG: Transformation. The landscape of Wola after 1989) The phenomenon of the scale and pace of change is something seen in other urban areas of Poland at this time, a sign that democratic change and capitalism was taking effect. Of these structures shooting up on Warsaw's skyline includes the infamous Czarny Kot (ENG: Black Cat) Hotel, the Warsaw Spire and the Kino W-Z cinema complex. The exhibition presents an architectural history of Wola, not only from the perspective of the architects and investors, but also allows you to look at the streets of Wola through the eyes of its inhabitants. This discussion will undoubtedly inform the vision of the Wola district for the future.
