There is a period in Polish history, which absurdity was more burdensome than funny, people trained their patience standing in lines and skillfully minimized their needs convincing themselves that it actually not that bad, but probably only not to go insane. Ubiquitous mediocrity made all designing and building processes much harder, cleverness was a basic requirement of an architect. How to do SOMETHING out of nothing, continual cooking „soup nothing” (polish name of sweet soup on milk with sugar and vanilla), which wanted to be similar to modern ones and even okay to eat. And what? They managed to do it.
„I don’t think any man can actually compete with her. If we can eliminate the practice of talking about female architects, it would be the greatest tribute we could give her.” Eva Jiřičná

People from First World countries love limitations. Following diets, constricting by minimalism and white walls. „A lot” means kitsch, unpleasant memory of cumulating useless stuff and a shining banner: „I can’t control myself”. We want to have little white houses and good simple life. I also want it, but hasn’t the modernism messed with our minds?
