Near the main market square of Krakow, in southern Poland, the Josef Czapski Pavilion by Esal Design Studio is a tribute to the life and work of Czapski, thanks to an idea of Krystyna Zachwatowicz and Andrzej Wajda. The new space is part of the National Museum, and is ideal for encounters, discussions and previews.


One part of the ventilated facade of the pavilion (about 410 square meters) is in glass, to create a large veranda that incorporates the entrance, with DuPont™ Corian® used for the upper part of the structure.


Esal Design Studio wanted to make a facade of great impact, a reminder of the blank canvas of an artist, that can also function as a large screen for projections.
