The seat of the Academy's authorities; is a beautiful historic building, which in 2013-2014 underwent a thorough modernization as part of the project: Akademia Changes Szczecin: Pałac pod Globusem.
For this facility, already in October 2010, a development plan was ready, taking into account the teaching needs of the university and the expectations of the residents of Szczecin - we wanted to create public space accessible to residents and tourists. Today, around 310 artistic events a year take place in the Palace. We invite you to concerts, exhibitions, open lectures, workshops and consultations. We present art created by our students, lecturers and invited guests.
The Palace under the Globe is the most beautiful and best-preserved building of this type in Szczecin. The original baroque residence that stood in this place was called Grumbkow Palace (as the seat of the Supreme President of the Pomeranian Province, Philip Otto von Grumbkow). It was designed by the Frenchman Piotr de Montarque, created in 1724-1725, and the sculptural decorations were made by the royal court artist, Johan Georg Glume. In this building, in 1759, Zofia Dorota Wirtemberska, later Maria Fyodorovna, wife of Tsar Paul I.
In 1890 it was purchased by the National Insurance Company and thoroughly rebuilt. The palace has survived in this form to this day, and its original appearance has been preserved, among others, in corridors, staircases and some rooms. The globe that crowns the gable and from which the building's present name is derived, was a symbol of the global scope of "National" interests. The palace survived the times of World War II almost intact.
