One of the most interesting architectural designs for a cultural facility in the world – this is how international media described the Mausoleum of the Martyrdom of Polish Villages in Michniów. Currently, thorough construction and exhibition assembly works are underway in the Mausoleum designed by Nizio Design International architectural studio. The studio provides the project author’s supervision over the implementation of the works and Mirosław Nizio oversees the activities related to scenography and graphic design of the exhibition. 


The form of the building designed by Mirosław Nizio and his team is a combination of sculptural inspirations and the wish for unity between the architecture that is being designed and the historical narration. The unique monolithic body of the building of the Mausoleum in Michniów consists of 11 segments, 5 of which are closed and 6 – open; they are severely cracked, which gives the object a touch of dramatic flair. The segments, one by one, become more and more deformed and disintegrated. The expressive architecture and intentional, progressive degradation of the successive elements of the structure symbolise escalation of repressions against villagers during war. 


The core exhibition of the Mausoleum of the Martyrdom of Polish Villages in Michniów will cover the area of 1,700 m2and will depict the successive stages of pacification. A team of graphic designers led by Mirosław Nizio are currently working on this part of the exhibition. The attention of the chief designer is simultaneously focused on supervising the construction works and preparing substantive content of the exhibition, as well as on designing the elements of scenography that will be supplemented by this content.
