EA: Awards that matter the public
The first stage of the investment was commissioned by the Warsaw Property Board
POLAND The Eurobuild Awards in Architecture were handed out during the second Eurobuild Architecture Festival on September 20th. There were five categories in the competition. In the Public Utility Place of the Year category the winner was chosen from three projects, which had reached the grand finals.

Bulwary Warszawskie [Warsaw Boulevards] has been chosen as the Public Utility Place of the Year. The site, having been separated by a busy road from the nearby Old Town, had been a rather neglected, rarely frequented area. The development of the area was intended to connect the unique riverside area with the Old Town and the Powiśle district, as well as to create an original recreational zone. The first stage of the investment, which is intended to breathe life back into the Vistula promenade, was commissioned by Zarząd Mienia m.st. Warszawy [the Warsaw Property Board] and designed by the Artchitecture and Architektura Krajobrazu studios.

Poznań city council commissioned Mariusz Więcek, Maciej Markiewicz and Małgorzata Helman to design the Stare Koryto Warty park, which has a total area of 4,000 sqm. The central element of the design is a square near the New Gasworks building, which is to function as a meeting point and an entrance with diverging footpaths. The park combines greenery with small decorative elements. The footpaths have been laid out in natural gravel, apart from a tarmac cycle path along the edge of the park, which connects the Old Town with the river Warta. The playground also share the concept of a dry riverbed with the rest of the design for the park. The main idea behind the design of the square was to develop a creative space that allows for diverse uses. Rafał Sieraczyński, Sebastian Bocian, Aleksandra Laprus and Aleksandra Kosmala-Czarnecka were also nominated for a project commissioned by the local authorities. They designed a transport hub in Solec Kujawski. The 1,100 sqm transport interchange is to be integrated with a customer service office. The project connects the embankment with the platforms on top of it as well as the undeveloped green area at its foot. It also complements the diverse architecture of the surroundings, which includes an early 20th century railway station, a modernist pavilion, prefabricated blocks and brick houses. The investor's intention was to develop a showcase and an entrance to the town.
