Warsaw Spire – a Skyscraper with Hyperboloid Glass Façade

Wola is a modern looking district of Warsaw, but actually it’s hundreds of years old. Almost completely destroyed during WWII Wola was rebuilt in a modern form during communism. Nowadays it’s becoming Warsaw’s business center with new skyscrapers like the Warsaw Spire.

Warsaw Spire is a big complex that contains several bulding designed by Jaspers & Eyers Partners and PROJEKT Polsko-Belgijska Pracownia Architektury. The main tower is 220 meters tall and it`s the second tallest building in Warsaw. It has an interesting hyperboloid glass façade. It houses the European Border and Coast Guard Agency known as Frontex.

In the center of the complex you can find Plac Europejski which is a part of the whole investment. It contains fountains and a nice garden with beach chairs and a big movie screen in summer time. There are also some restaurants here. In 2018 it was awarded as the best new public space in Poland.

Despite of business in this area, Wola also includes residential buildings, hotels and tourist attractions such as the Warsaw Uprising Museum located just few hundred meters from the Warsaw Spire tower.
