June 24, 2009 Katowice the City 0

“Superjednostka”, localised in the City Center of Katowice near the roundabout and the famous “Spodek”, is a dwelling building, modeled upon Le Corbusier’s ideas. Developed in 1967, this 17-storey housing unit is 187 metres long and 51 metres high. A total area covers 33 600 sq. m and seats 762 flats. Since 1994, “Superjednostka” obtains a housing estate status. Its dimensions and appearance are criticised by some and admired by the others.
