The Tatary district as the first modern multidwelling residential estate in Lublin

Urban development concepts and architectural solutions


Abstract

The Tatary district is located in the central-east part of Lublin. It includes the first Lublin’s multi-dwelling residential estate neighbouring buzzing streets and large industrial facilities, built according to modern architectural and urban concepts. The residential estate, erected starting in the 1950’, served as a model for subsequent large residential estates of Lublin. The technical solutions introduced in the Tatary buildings translated into a new standard of living and functional solutions that were unique within the traditional city tissue, shaping it permanently. After almost 60 years, the estate is facing a number of problems due to political, planning and architectural decisions. This article aims at describing and evaluating these past solutions.
