Warsaw Spire – a Skyscraper with Hyperboloid Glass Façade

Wola is a modern looking district of Warsaw, but actually it’s few hundred 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 buildings designed by Jaspers & Eyers Partners and PROJEKT Polsko-Belgijska Pracownia Architektury. The main tower is 220 meter 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 few restaurants, fountains and outdoor movie theater operating in summertime. 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 away from the Warsaw Spire.
