The Krakow Festival Office, together with the Association of Polish Architects, Krakow Branch, is the organiser of an international two-stage architectural and urban development competition aimed at creating a multifunctional literary centre under the name of “Centrum Literatury i Języka – Planeta Lem” (Planet Lem Literature and Language Centre) in the former Salt Store at Na Zjeździe 8 Street in Krakow.
 
The patron of the Literature and Language Centre in Krakow will be Stanisław Lem – an outstanding Polish writer, philosopher and futurologist, the most popular Polish author in history, who was connected with Krakow throughout the entirety of his life. An interactive exhibition inspired by Lem’s thought heritage will be a central element of the building. Moreover, "Planet Lem Literature and Language Centre” will also house a modern multifunctional hall for hosting literary events in Krakow, a space for exhibitions devoted to literature and language, a publicly accessible media library, a multimedia studio, a café and a bookshop, as well as office spaces. The venue will be the operating centre for the Krakow – UNESCO City of Literature programme.
