The Cosmic Kiosks Have Landed

Yet another new project has been installed on the historical Royal Route running from Zamkowy Square through Krakowskie Przedmieście Street to Nowy Świat Street in Warsaw. After the stone benches, bicycle racks and round flower pots, new-look newsagent's kiosks arrived Nov. 20.

The kiosks were designed by Towarzystwo Projektowe Sc. according to strict guidelines set by the historical monument conservation officer. The new kiosks have a modern, flowing design and do not try to imitate historical buildings. They are even compared by some passersby to spacecraft, and have been getting their fair share of mixed reviews by some of Warsaw's residents.

Some find it a good idea to add modern designs to this historical area, while others are negative about the "cosmic kiosks," which in their view should have a more retro look.
