Grand Opening of the Centennial Hall

Grand Opening of the Centennial HallThe grand opening of the facility was disturbed by an unexpected event. Hans Poelzig, the author of the facility development plan and designer of the Four-Dome Pavilion, was not introduced to the invited personages. Omission of the artist of such a rank as Poelzig stirred-up interest of the academic circles. That incident gave rise to an increasingly growing conflict of two architects with the city authorities, who due to that reason eventually left Wrocław.
