 - lecture by dr. Michał Wiśniewski


Between Lviv and Kraków. The influence of the Lviv Technical University on the architecture of Kraków
 – lecture by Dr Michał Wiśniewski within the programme accompanying the exhibition Lviv, 24 June 1937. City, architecture, modernism. The academics from the Lviv Technical University left their mark on the architecture of interwar Poland. Many Lviv architects, including Fryderyk Tadanier and Wacław Nowakowski, were active in Kraków, which did not have a technical university then. The Kraków skyline from the interwar period offers an interesting subject for study allowing us to trace the influence of the Lviv Technical University in the context of local tradition.
