Issue 19 contains articles inspired by the 7th Academic and Technical Conference ARCHBUD 2015 which addressed the “Problems of contemporary architecture and construction” and was organized by the University of Ecology and Management in Warsaw.

Part II, Self-Government, presents an article dealing with urban renewal in Mazovia. Part III, Varia, consists of a case study concerning the use of derelict former military and railway areas in central Poland and an obituary of professor Hanka Ludmiła Zaniewska, an outstanding teacher and researcher.
