CSW Torun

CSW Torun

The most significant modern building in Torun is the Centre for Contemporary Art (known as "CSW" in Polish).

It has several exhibition spaces as well as a cinema and, as is essential for all modern museums, a good cafe too.

Construction began in 2006 as part of a "The Signs of Time" programme co-ordinated by the National Culture Center. CSW, the first post war purpose-built contemporary art gallery in Poland, was completed on 14th June 2008.

There are three floors with 4000 m² of exhibition space. The ground floor contains a  Cinema, a large room with kitchen space, an Art Bookstore and Sömmering's reading-room.

Building's special feature is one transparent wall with the spiral staircase visible from the outside. It's the first thing that people notice (to be honest it looks really nice in the evening).
I think this is the main element of the construction - without it it'd be just another bulding covered with bricks.

The first and second floor comprises exhibition rooms (height varying from 3.7 m to 7.26m).

Offices are located on third floor where there is also a terrace.

(If you are from Torun you will already know that this is one of the most popular places for local photographers...).
