Jadwiga Grabowska-Hawrylak was one of the most important architects of her generation in Poland. Her extensive architecture career spanned much of the second half of the 20th Century; the projects in this exhibition range from 1954 to 1993. From her participation in Wrocław’s post-war reconstruction in the 1950s to her modernist designs of the 1960s and 70s and the post-modern aesthetic adopted in her later work in the 80s and 90s, Grabowska-Hawrylak’s career reflects the changing politics and culture of Poland.

Through models, films, and photographs, Patchwork: The Architecture of Jadwiga Grabowska-Hawrylak examines the architect’s work during the creation of the new Wrocław. This is the first comprehensive presentation of her work outside Poland.

Curated by Michał Duda and Małgorzata Devosges-Cuber, Museum of Architecture in Wrocław.
