Studio

 

Beginning of our model making activity starts in 70s. Those days, Jan Bruliński SR, then a student of Architecture in Warsaw Technical University had started to prepare his first architectural models professionally.

 

 

While his experience grew, he was invited to an increasing number of contest teams. In a certain moment six – seven teams awarded in various architectural contests had Jan Bruliński as their modeller included. Examples of those works may be found in SARP bulletins from the 70s. In the meantime Jan Bruliński was employed by Civilian Aviation Research and Project Office in Warsaw, where he created, i.a. new airport project.

Among the most significant works of that time was Warsaw Citadel Polish Army Museum model prepared together with Mirosław Miruć designed by architects Marek Budzyński and Andrzej Kiciński. During the Martial Law period, there was a few years gap in his activity. In mid 80s only, an order was placed for wooden model of Ahmed-Bey palace in Constantine, Algeria. The photos show delicate tangle of arcade cloisters, manually prepared, which makes even bigger impression today. In the same time, the cooperation with Cracow’s architects – Romuald Loegler, or Franciszek Maciuk initiated. As a result, such projects were created as: the model of Jagiellońska Library development, or the contest work for the project of the International Culture Centre in West Berlin (both designed by R. Loegler).

In the late 80s Jan Bruliński worked as a freelancer for Warsaw’s Warcent and many other studios (i.a. model of Sports Hall by the Dziesięciolecie Stadium designed by prof. arch. Maciej Krasiński). After the transition period, in 1992 BRULO Urban and Buildings Models was established in Cracow, with team consisting of Jan Bruliński SR, and his sons Marian and Jan JR. First works of the new company were the models of Fim Tower, Warsaw Stock Exchange building ordered by MBP Warcent, as well as of Europolgaz facilities, prepared for arch. Tadeusz Spychała from Vienna. In following years many of company’s models were created for offices from Berlin and Vienna. While the domestic real estate market was growing, more and more Polish projects emerged. Many of today’s most recognised office buildings of Warsaw were first the models created by our studio (i.a. Fim Tower- today’s Orco, Polish Telecommunication building, Intercontinental, or Rondo 1). Since then, our studio’s portfolio has been strongly diversified – from minimalistic conceptual models, through housing property development investment projects, office buildings, public utility facilities, to weather resistant miniatures of cathedrals for Park Miniatur Sakralnych “Złota Góra” and realistic models of mountains which can be seen in Centrum Górskie “Korona Ziemi” in Zawoja.

Our major objective is to make our customers get always exactly what they expect, within prompt terms, in very friendly atmosphere. Despite our studio’s constant development, we strive for maintaining our image of a family business. It is also reflected by the studio itself, where we join traditional sculpture techniques with modern computer technologies.
