Architects support Jurek Owsiak


This year, Architecture Snob platform, decided to involve architects in collecting money for the Great Orchestra of Christmas Charity Foundation, by organizing special auctions where you can place your bids for books and albums of well-known architects, participation in lunch or meeting with prominent architecture critics and architects.


– I’ve been thinking for a few years about the way for architecture to support the noble goal of the Great Orchestra of Christmas Charity. It was not until the launch of Architecture Snob platform and the interview with the architect Ewa Kuryłowicz, who stated that Poles and Polish architects in particular lack empathy, that the idea really got going – says Marcin Szczelina, the editor-in-chief of Architecture Snob. The most distinguished architects responded to the platform’s invitation. – All of the invited architects enthusiastically expressed willingness to participate in auctions for the Great Orchestra of Christmas Charity. The response is very encouraging, so if the auctions are popular, we’ll definitely do it again next year – adds Szczelina.


The 28th Final of the Great Orchestra of Christmas Charity will take place on January 12, 2020. However, you can participate in our auctions from today. With all the money raised, modern equipment needed to save children’s lives and health will be bought, with particular emphasis on general surgery, cardiac surgery and neurosurgery.
