Brześć – the city of an eastern borderlands, architecture of the 2nd Republic of Poland


Abstract

The borderland, often called „ land lost” are becoming the places we often return to in our memories, the need of rediscovering them arises. The past might be described in a different way: through pictures of different life styles, architecture, people, tradition. It is natural they create longing and sorrow caused often by the lack of acceptance of modern life styles. Because borderland towns are located abroad, their architecture, tradition, culture, literature are our cultural heritage and we shall not forget it.

The phenomenon of the lack of bond of people and places observed today, makes “places with no soul”. Steering and controlling people, people’s needs, emotions, make a person an object. A man loses oneself, loses one’s soul. Many places are being ruled by a moment, similarity, rush and loneliness There are no history, past in them, there is only the present moment and they are characterized by the similarity. We cannot interpret them and we have no bonds with them.
