Szczecin Philharmonic to compete for another award
The building of the Mieczysław Karłowicz Szczecin Philharmonic has a chance of becoming one of the Seven Wonders of Poland in the National Geographic Traveler’s contest.
The idea behind this contest is to honour and promote the finest and most extraordinary of Poland’s tourist attractions. Also, the aim is to prove that these attractions can match up to and be as exciting as those of other countries.
This year’s fifth edition of the contest features 16 nominations from across the country. Szczecin Philharmonic’s competitors for the “Wonder of Poland” title include the Museum of Fire in Żory, the Basilica of St. Jacob and St. Agnes in Nysa and the Potocki Palace in Radzyń Podlaski.
Designed by Estudio Barozzi Veiga from Barcelona, Szczecin Philharmonic has already received some major awards. One of them is the European Union Prize for Contemporary Architecture – Mies van der Rohe Award 2015, which is considered one of the most important distinctions in architecture.
