Abstract
Architecture is an art that safely stands on stable foundations and generally do not move. The same is in the traditional art like painting and sculpture. They are "static", but often artists try to get impression of movement. There are also some interesting examples of special irregularities and exaggerations in classical architecture that were made in order to achieve certain illusions: of slenderness, bigger space, longer axis...and movement. The author tries to achieve the illusion of movement in large-scale architecture of tower and sport buildings, made with cooperation of Eng. Wacław Zalewski and Wiktor Humięcki.
