About location

The building of the Regional Centre of Culture, Education and Music Documentation (ROKEiDM) is located at 1 Maja Street, in proximity to the main seat of the academy – the historic Karol Poznański Palace. The facility was created by combining an old tenement house, altered and adapted to its new function, and a modern building designed from scratch. Both parts are connected with a patio covered with a glass roof (the old courtyard), functioning as the foyer, with a transparent glazed lift shaft surrounded with an open staircase. From the side of the palace courtyard, it is enclosed in a glass elevation, which like a mirror reflects the historic palace and the surrounding park.
