The building of the University of Rzeszów was distinguished in the project. The NIAiU issued a Mosaic of Local Identities

The National Institute of Architecture and Urban Planning emphasizes the importance of architecture as a carrier of local identity in Poland. In the latest edition of "Mosaic of Local Identities," close to 100 examples of architectural objects were identified, which symbolize the changes and aspirations accompanying subsequent generations since 1989. Among these symbols, the building of the University of Rzeszów was also included.

Local identity is a key concept for understanding the "Mosaic..." It manifests as a continuously shaped awareness of common characteristics and a sense of unity. Political, social, and climatic changes, which unfold differently in various parts of the country, also affect our architectural space - emphasize the creators of the "Mosaic of Local Identities" project from the National Institute of Architecture and Urban Planning.

The project of modernization and expansion of building A1 at the University of Rzeszów, carried out under the direction of architect Maciej Trybus, serves as an excellent example of harmoniously blending tradition with modernity. The main goal of the investment was to adapt the facility to contemporary usability standards while simultaneously emphasizing its cultural significance to the local community. The building's design was prepared by a team of architects from S.T. Architects, consisting of: Maciej Trybus - leading architect, Jakub Podolak, and Izabela Tobiasz.

Architecture illustrates the spatial record of changes and aspirations accompanying successive generations. Also on the list are other locations from our region that stand out on a national scale:

Przemyśl - National Museum of the Przemyśl Region.

Markowa - Ulma Family Museum of Poles Saving Jews during World War II in Markowa.

Building a sense of local identity is an ongoing process. We experience social, climatic, political, and technological changes that are also reflected in our space. The immediate exchange of information and globalization, the blurring of geographic boundaries, and the standardization in architecture make questions about our own identity and local specificity relevant once again - say the authors of the "Mosaic of Local Identities" project.
