Bohdan Pniewski

Aug 26, 1897 - Sep 5, 1965

Bohdan Wiktor Kazimierz Pniewski was a Polish modernist architect, professor at the Warsaw University of Technology and the Academy of Fine Arts in Warsaw. He is mostly known as a designer of state buildings in pre-war and post-war Poland, though the working conditions of an architect, in these eras, palpably varied. Pniewski, popular amongst the Polish political interwar elite, remained prominent in Communist Poland. Surprisingly, "Beck's of court architect", as he was called by his enemies after 1945 due to his role in designing the palace of the hated minister, constructed his most known buildings after the war - in the People's Republic of Poland.
