Work on one of Warsaw’s most exciting public buildings was completed at the beginning of 2013. The building, designed by Finnish architect Rainer Mahlamäki, has 12,800 m2 of useable space. One-third of this area will be occupied by the core exhibition, due to open in 2014. The remainder comprises temporary exhibition areas, a multi-purpose auditorium which can host conferences, film screenings, concerts, plays etc., an Education Center, two screening rooms, a restaurant and café.
Construction works, funded by the City of Warsaw and the Ministry of Culture and National Heritage, were carried out by Polimex-Mostostal.
