In 2007, members of the artist collective Alterazioni Video began to notice an interesting trend in Sicilian architecture: abandoned, unfinished public buildings dotting the landscape with "contemporary ruins.” Now, the nonprofit Incompiuto Sicilianoaims to publish a book that offers “a new perspective for looking at these forgotten buildings — ones that don’t fall into ruin after they are built, but rise into ruin before they are built."

Palm House Lubiechów near Wałbrzych was built in 1911-1994, in the surrounding area of the castle Ksiaz, on the the command of Duke of Pless and John Henry Książ XV von Pless, heirs to a fortune of Hochberg (owner of one of the largest estates in Europe at that time). 15-meter glass building where date palms were planted was a central object. The viewing gallery was created on the roof of palm house. Most remarkable, however, is the building blocks of palm house - walls for creepers and tunnels forming a charming alleys were built of porous tufa, brought straight from the slopes of the sicilian Mount Etna.
