An exhibition about the historic implementation of Mostostal Warszawa

We invite you to the exhibition titled "The history of lighting masts from Plac Teatralny", describing the constructions made in 1964 by Mostostal Warszawa.

The exhibition is about four lighting masts on Teatralny sq. in Warsaw, which have an unusual construction and interesting history. In 1964, the Warsaw Steel and Industrial Construction Company "Mostostal", under the supervision of the assembly manager Stanisław Piotrowski, set up 20-meter-long lighting masts, bearing 10-arm reflectors that subtly provide scattered light in the evening. Today, we can rediscover forgotten and possibly the only design solution for lighting masts in Warsaw and Poland.

The location of masts in the pedestrian communication route along Senatorska street gives the opportunity to show these extraordinary architectural objects to Varsovians and tourists, and above all to pay attention to their existence in the space that surrounds us. There are many interesting objects around us waiting to be discovered.

The project is co-financed from the funds of the Capital City of Warsaw as part of the public task.

The project was carried out as a part of celebrating the 100th anniversary of regaining independence and celebrating the 100th anniversary of Poland's independence.
