Before I visited the polish city Szczecin for the fist time, I was expecting a city style that is mixed between Art Nouveau, Renaissance and Socialist architecture – and that is true for most parts of the city. The mix of different architecture styles is interesting to see and gives the city its own, very unique charm.
Since I visited without preparing very much in advance, I was particularly surprised by the new Philharmonic Hall. To me, the patterns and shapes of the building and in particular its roof are so modern and different from all other buildings but at the same time seamlessly fit into the cityscape.
At times, the facade appears to be translucent at times and light at times, at other times it feels heavier (depending on the light), but never out of place.
