Wrocław Brutalism – Plac Grunwaldski

The previous couple of posts have featured brutalist buildings from Berlin and photos that I took on our way to Poland last month. Once we arrived, I’m pleased to say that the concrete didn’t let up and I spent some time visiting some lovely Soviet era creations including the 6 towers and associated commercial blocks that make up the Plac Grunwaldski in Wrocław. The estate was build between 1970 and ’73 and designed by Jadwiga Grabowska-Hawrylak. They are in a terrible state now, but still make for a real landmark on the Wroclaw skyline.

Once again I used my medium-format Bronica SQ-A camera and a selection of Fujifilm Velvia 100 and Kodak 400Tx (that I processed and scanned at home).
