al-Madīnah or la ville? An architectural & urban “clash of civilizations” – the example of the city of Algiers

The threat to Algiers is not Westernisation (on the one hand) or fundamentalism (on the other), but the spread of slums, which in the short term can reach the unique neighbourhoods of this remarkable city.

Discount stores in a large city – the “biedronkisation” of the urban space – the case of Warsa

Such a location requires the consent of conservation officers as well as the adaptation of the shop appearance to their guidelines, including adaptation of the shop logotype to the character of the area. An example of this is not only the Biedronka shop at Nowy Świat in Warsaw, but also that in the Spiski Palace in Kraków. Additionally, as opposed to the Lidl chain, the Biedronka
