Asso­cia­tions is a series of arti­stic and archi­tec­tu­ral cre­ations that are sculp­tu­res and at the same time small func­tio­nal objects loca­ted along the left bank of the Vistula river in Warsaw.

The employ­ment of con­crete as buil­ding mate­rial and parks as space for the reali­za­tion of the pro­ject refers to the com­mon descrip­tion of War­saw as the city of green and grey. These arti­stic inte­rven­tions aimed at the public impulse, pla­ced in a rich, natu­ral and lush space are meant to evoke feelings asso­cia­ted with the com­bi­na­tion of the two ele­ments: nature and culture.

Con­crete gives to the desi­gners – archi­tects and arti­sts alike – an almost unli­mi­ted fre­edom of cre­ation. Today com­monly regar­ded as a tool and object of inte­rest of engi­ne­ers, con­crete used to be a test gro­und for such cre­ators and arti­sts as Le Cor­bu­sier, Carlo Scarpa, or Tadao Ando. We invi­ted some excel­lent arti­sts and archi­tects to pre­pare pro­jects espe­cially envi­sa­ged for Asso­cia­tions. Four of them – works by Mau­rycy Gomu­lickiJakub Woy­na­row­skiŁukasz Jastrub­czak, and Jan Sukien­nik – were suc­cess­fully realized.
