In ideal, post-modern visions of architects terraces on roofs were supposed to be a common space that integrates the inhabitants, a place that enables meetings and recreation. Propagated in the twenties, started to be used large-scale on post-war estates and in new buildings in city centres. The first Wrocław terraces appeared just after the Khrushchev Thaw in 1956, and in the 60s and 70s the people in Wrocław would sunbathe, dry their laundry, drink coffee or go out to have a cigarette during their break on a dozen of roofs.
These places are now mostly forgotten and neglected, locked, cluttered with aerials, only sometimes used to air the bed linen. Do we need these common spaces? How can we revive them and make the occupants use them again? We invite you to come to MWW to hear the story about Wrocław roofs.
