The Medical Society Building (Gmach Towarzystwa Kekarskiego) was designed by Wadyslaw Kaczmarski and Josef Sowinski and built in 1904. It would hardly merit mention if it were not for its interior decor , the creation of Stanislaw Wyspianski, one of the moist talented artists of the Young Poland movement. He was responsible for the interior decoration of individual rooms and furnishings inspired by folk art, as in the magnificent window Apollo and The Solar System.
