School of modernism – the problem of evaluating the architecture of Warsaw school buildings during the interwar period on the example of the former Female Vocational School

Konrad Szumiński



The aim of the article is to present a procedure model in the field of recognition and assessment of cultural values of modernist school buildings from the interwar period. The main part of the work is a case study of an exemplary school from this period, whose architecture has been evaluated. This allowed us to determine how the defined cultural values and their carriers appearing in the monument translate into conclusions for the development of permissible transformations in a selected complex of buildings. The article is an attempt to answer the question how the analysis evaluating a monument influences the final presentation of the identified values in contemporary forms of architecture in a historical context. The presented research process should be a standard of conduct with similar examples of architecture of modernism.
