Pilsudski Square is one of Warsaw's most important public spaces. This huge square at the heart of the city is rich in historical and cultural heritage. The seventeenth-century Saski Palace and the Baroque Brühl Palace that lined it were both destroyed in the Second World War but there are proposals to rebuild them. Large crowds congregate in the square to visit the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier; ceremonial events take place in it and local residents traverse it every day. The Metropolitan Office Building occupies the northern edge of the square, completing its missing side and re-establishing the formal volume of the square. It attempts a sensitive response to a unique set of challenges posed by the historic nature of the square. The aim was to create a thoroughly modern counterpart to the neighbouring historical buildings - matching their height, mass and materials - without resorting to pastiche (text from architect's website).
