Brief information about the architectural studio:

Kuryłowicz & Associates Architecture Studio was founded in 1990 by Prof Stefan Kuryłowicz. Today, it is the most renowned and titled architectural company in the country.

Brief information about the project from an architectural point of view:

This is not the first and certainly not the last product of the studio’s fascination with aeronautics - and the fascination is one that is justified by the function. The curve of the façade resembles a section through an aeroplane. The low cost ethos of budget airlines is well reflected in the simple structural solutions, spare interiors and inexpensive materials.
