As an architect, I shape the lives of others through my work, and I will notice the world around me. I am a creative person and I need to create things.
I am an Architect and a painter with over twenty years of professional experience in Poland and abroad. Assistant professor at the Faculty of Architecture, Cracow University of Technology, active member of IARP and SARP. Inspired by Kenneth Frampton's Critical Regionalism, in my work I pay particular attention to design deeply embedded into the context and local conditions. I am fascinated by the space that affects the users through all their senses and shows construction solutions as an integral part of the architectural aesthetics. Thanks to my design experience in very different cultural circles, I seek in modern architecture a response to the need for identity and a sense of being rooted in a dynamically changing world. I am interested in an unconventional approach to the process of creating an architectural concept. I believe that each generation of young architects can bring vitality, energy and unique ideas to this beautiful profession.
