key words: new architectural characters of building, local architectural style, health resort

Summary:

Lądek Zdrój is one of the oldest Lower Silesia health-resorts. Historical, economic conditions, restrictions and natural advantages are fundamental factors shaping the peculiar format of the health-resort. In 1945 so far successively shaped identity of the entity was discontinued. The issue is: to what extent implemented new individual components of the building development are amending so far formed architectural forms and functional arrangements. In the post-war period, mainly in 70ties, residential buildings and objects performing the healing function were raised. Detailed analysis is pointing, that body, form, arrangement of newly raised residential objects isn't correlated with historically formed characteristics. It is being proved that a scope of the disagreement is a form of contradictions or even of conflict and the deformation of the landscape inside. Healing objects are a realization, what's more without no significant associations with the local style, of standardized typical solutions. It is stated that by definition it was already decided to introduce strange landscape forms into the local characteristic representing the exaggerated monumentality.
