This publication offers a fascinating insight into a time when Upper Silesia was almost a borderless space, effectively lacking many of the political boundaries that now divide it. It presents the architecture of the inter-war period in this distinctive and unique region, built on heavy industries such as coal mining, iron and steel, which nevertheless offered much more than merely images of sweat, toil and tears. Located at a crossroads of history, with a highly complex social structure including several distinct ethnic communities living side by side, Upper Silesia developed its own unique cultural essence. It was also the location of numerous high-quality architectural projects during the inter-war period, as architects such as Leopold Bauer, Josef Gočár and Erik Mendelsohn left their own distinctive legacy here. The publication presents 14 outstanding buildings from this period.
