Hotel Forum, Krakow Poland

The Forum Hotel stands as a modernist remnant of Russian communism in historic Kraków Poland. Completed in 1998 1988, the hotel has 280 rooms on six levels stilted up above the public level.

The angular shapes seem to derive from the curve of the Wisla river, with windows angled toward the sun, and brutal materials celebrating concrete. Each level slides a little away from the river to provide shading on the south and terraces on the north. It has fallen into deterioration lately. The sad-looking modernism is shocking in the historic context of this beautiful city.
