RENASCENT: For the Future of Warsaw

Project description

We are proud to introduce Renascent; an exciting and considerately designed combination of new and existing buildings, social spaces and public facilities. New student buildings are of low embodied carbon CLT construction. A “crumbling” feature external staircase has been designed, representing the conflict embedded within the rich history of Warsaw. Our proposals are viable, sustainable, and technically ambitious. Designed by students, for students, and for the future of Warsaw.
