I am master student of architecture at TU Delft, looking for interesting opportunities to work in an inspiring environment. I believe that varied practice is essential for my future career as an architect. One of my main interests is a methodical approach to housing design that together with active participation of community in design process could allow for a wider reach of quality architecture. Also, recently my awarness about issues of sustainability has increased, therefore I am aiming to gain knowledge about green building solutions.

The topic of the project is a student housing complex, a place for students in Lublin to live, study and spend their leisure time. The majority of existing university campuses in Poland built between 50’s and 90’s are perceived as monotonous and unfriendly living environment and they offer low standard of housing. The main concept was to create a varied housing structure - both in urban scale and as a singular living unit, based on modern temporary dwelling patterns. The design consists of four low-rise building collectives organised around courtyards. Proposed units offer affordable living, vary in size and degree of shared common space and they can be used as apartments for families.

OPEN HOUSE - LAB FOR BLENDED FAMILIES location: Ijburg, Amsterdam, Netherlands 2019, 1st sem MSc, individual work

The aim of the group project was to design dwelling typologies for different social groups and test a new masterplan for the island Ijburg The following project is a proposition for housing blended (patchwork) families. As field research on lifestyle patterns showed, the number of occupants in blended families (in majority children) is very variable. Throughout the life of the household, there are times when the house is empty and quiet and the other time it is bustling and full of life. Therefore it is crucial for a house to adapt to different life stages of a family.

THEATER IN WARSAW location: Warsaw, Poland 2018, 4th year, 7th sem, individual academic work coordinator: Paweł Grodzicki / pawel.grodzicki@pw.edu.pl

The design challange was to propose a cultural center for Warsaw citiziens, which would serve both as a multifunctional theatre and place of local activity. Simultaneity and plurality of cultural activities were the key issues. A design process consisted in discovering a character of a public realm through model making, as well as analysing different forms of a stage performance. In this particular project, tutors encouraged to focus on the essence of a theatre, so the chosen site didn’t have any strong architectural context.

In my work, I was seeking for a special ambience of a theatre - a place which attracts a visitor, but at the same time hides a mystery. A chosen concept is a building made of many layers which differ in geometry, scale, lightening and used materials.


ANALYSIS stage and audience design

few spectators

bad visibility in the back

optimal

After establishing a form of an audience - concentrated, fan-shaped, several analysis based on chosen parameters were made. With a use of a grasshopper script, I checked an influence of a shape of the audience on the sightlines, number of spectators and visibility of a stage.

BAR ON THE BAY 2015, location: Wieliszew, Poland used programmes: Archicad, Illustrator, Photoshop

The main subject of the project was an integration with a natural landscape - a charming region of backwaters of river Narew. During site trips, I made several sketch impressions to understand specifics of the natural environment, landform, rythms, and ambience.


The chosen site for the project is a small bay on the lake. The spatial concept is to complement it with an orthogonal composition of two buildings with and amphitheatrical audience inbetween and place a floating outdoor stage in the middle. An axis joins the site with a nearby located village and leads visitors to the lake.

TENSEGRITY RELOADED 2017

The primary goals for design was the large span, lightness and integral aesthetics of the structure. The basic span of the structural system is based on the tensegrity principle - mutual stabilization of an arch (the element is mostly compressed) and ties on the sides (stretch elements).

This principle is used in the easiest way by a shooting arc. Its development is the repetitive construction span.
