Architects Dress Up as Buildings

Poland's top architects dressed up as buildings they had designed at a fancy dress party thrown Oct. 2 to celebrate the 15 years since the Architektura-murator monthly was launched.

The birthday party, billed as the Night of Dancing Buildings, took place at the head office of the Polish Architects' Association in Warsaw and attracted several hundred guests, mostly architects and designers.

They included Stefan Kuryłowicz, Marek Budzyński and Christian Kerez, as well as heads of cultural institutions, curators, museum officials, business and advertising partners, shareholders and staff from the Murator publishing house.

The event also served as an opportunity for the magazine's journalists to launch a campaign to renovate the 1960s neon sign at the entrance to the modernist Warszawa Powi¶le rail station, for which purpose they donated money from the tickets to the party.

The jury, consisting of Architektura-murator contributors Krzysztof Mycielski, Grzegorz Pi±tek and Grzegorz Stiasny, voted for the best costume. The winner was Aleksander Chylak, a Warsaw-based urban planner who appeared in a coat with a motif depicting the unfinished development plan for Warsaw's district of Wola. The coat was designed by his daughter, fashion designer Zofia Chylak.

The guests were also able to take in an exhibition showing competitions, campaigns, designs and displays that have been organized by the magazine over the last 15 years.

The Warsaw Voice was one of the media sponsors of the event.
