architect daniel libeskind adds a new high-rise to the skyline of warsaw, poland, inspired by the city’s history. zlota 44 is a 251 unit building consisting of 54 floors. the building is currently under construction and is projected for completion in 2010. being born in poland, libeskind wanted to create a building that would give a new profile to the city’s skyline, embracing warsaw’s aspirations rather than being another corporate building. the eastern face’s form is derived from the path of the sun, providing daylight to the surrounding buildings. libeskind believes that residential buildings will play a major role in shaping cities in the future and aims to create something architectural distinctive with this project. while most of zlota 44 will be devoted to residences there will also be a retail section and underground parking.
