Open access

Abstract

Modernism in architecture of the lubuskie voivodeship is not dominating style. Objects created in the period of its greatest popularity are still fighting for recognition of their value as historical monuments. One of such facilities in Zielona Góra is building at Chopin street, where today is The Teacher Training Centre. However, originally object was intended to be a sports hall. The topic worth of further analysis is the construction of the building. The skeleton is a unique steel frame, made in 1930 by the famous pre-war company Fabrik und für Brückenbau Eisenkonstruktionen BEUCHELT & Co. Grünberg in Schlesien. In order to build walls the brick technology was used. It is a rarely seen combination that indicates the attempt to experiment with new solutions by engineers of the era of modernism.
