So long folks – it’s been almost a month since I posted, so it’s high time I pop in and do an update. I’ve been in Poland for three weeks now and life’s been good, though the weather has not been merciful. It snowed a little here in my town, which was awesome, but todayContinue reading “Wroclaw/Breslau trip”

The new building of MoMA Warsaw – yes or no?
The Museum of Modern Art in Warsaw has a new building under construction.
Couvent de la Tourette near Lyon
Just what it says on the tin – long story short, I was in a boring lecture on the first Friday of the term (and of 2023 as well) and I was surfing the web, then an ad popped up advertising cheap flights within Europe, so I started looking. There still are many countries inContinue reading “Couvent de la Tourette near Lyon”
Varsity jackets, sunsets, busy autumn
As you might have noticed, lately this blog has been mostly personal updates rather than actual 🐺🍧 cσ𝓝ⓉẸＮ𝕋 🐠😝! The reasons for this are multiple… I’ll recount the most direct ones. A) Almost two months ago I started teacher training which finally filled my days with lots of hours of supervised work and got meContinue reading “Varsity jackets, sunsets, busy autumn”
[Torun, PL] Pavilions on Philadelphia Boulevard
This is a rushed article so not edited; bear with me though, it expresses most of what I needed to say. Lately, meaning especially in late June when construction started, an important topic in the local news in my hometown, Torun (a 200,000-resident city in northern Poland, located along the main river in the country,Continue reading “[Torun, PL] Pavilions on Philadelphia Boulevard”
Storytelling through houses in The Sims 2 – Pleasantview (part 1)
It’s no surprise that settings can be, and often are, important parts of a story told through a movie/book/show/whatever other fictional form. But so far, video games (or computer games, or digital games) have not been classified as fictional forms until very recently, and their status as ‘fictional forms’ has been neglected and even rejected.Continue reading “Storytelling through houses in The Sims 2 – Pleasantview (part 1)”
Coldean – affordable housing under construction (to open in summer 2023)

In fact, one of the things I liked the most about my job as delivery cyclist at JustEat (apartContinue reading “Coldean – affordable housing under construction (to open in summer 2023)”
Visit to University of Sussex campus
Omg, so this was completely incidental. It would’ve been not incidental had I remembered more from second year architectural history lectures. Last Thursday I went to Sussex University campus to sign up at a dental practice, and the architecture there… struck me. I was honestly baffled wondering how anyone could build something so beautiful andContinue reading “Visit to University of Sussex campus”

Edinburgh is plain ugly (looks like piss, too)*
Please help me identify the building I’m talking about so that I can edit this post so it makes more sense to you.
New Filmhouse outside Sheraton Hostel revised
Back when I was still in Edinburgh, in 2019 or 2020, I don’t remember, Richard Murphy from Richard Murphy Architects came to the basement of ESALA in Chambers Street to give a lecture. At the end of the lecture, he broke the news of his studio’s new design for a cinema centre, to be builtContinue reading “New Filmhouse outside Sheraton Hostel revised”
