Affecting the look of a futuristic zeppelin, Telewizja Polska have announced plans for a museum dedicated to film and television to be built outside their new building.
Compared by some to a UFO, the steel-clad three-level project shall rise on the site of a carwash and will be set inside a newly developed square. Featuring halls and exhibition spaces, the investment will include halls and exhibition spaces as well as a sweeping, fan-shaped staircase connecting these together.
Whilst the specific content of the museum has yet to be formally announced, it is known that the exhibitions will seek to make use of multimedia solutions whilst also spotlighting the historical recording equipment that has been saved over the ages.
Designed by PIG Architecki, it will complement TVP’s new production facility, construction of which began at the start of the year. Set to be the most modern TV studio in the country, the project will include wardrobe warehouses and an outdoor studio on a eco-friendly green roof.
Also featuring rain retention systems, the 20,000 sq/m building will be controlled by intelligent SMART systems and tout a giant 3D screen covering a 300 sq/m corner of the façade. The building is being erected next door to TVP’s current HQ, a vulgar glass fortress (pictured below) whose mind-boggling aesthetics have often been likened to both Gargamel’s Castle and the Tower of Babel.
