Mag.Arch, born in Poland, studied in Vienna and Los Angeles, worked in Vienna and Accra, Ghana.


I have always been inspired by foreign cultures. Seemingly accidential compositions, their improvisations and variations (be it textiles, pottery, food, natural formations or sound). Using them as an experimental pattern rather than a reflection of reality, I am trying to trace the unknown and by interpreting the existing; giving new connections and solutions to the many urban conditions. This is why I have always found architecture as an interdisciplinary platform to express economical, political and social concerns in such a visual medium.


In January 2016 I have graduated with Distinction from Studio Hani Rashid, University of Applied Arts Vienna (jury: Greg Lynn, Sanford Kwinter, Hani Rashid, Klaus Bollinger, Brian Cody, Kazuyo Sejima) with thesis project Tectonic Creolisation investigating a post-colonial african metropolis condition, proposing an institutional building in Addis Ababa, capital of Ethiopia, which integrates civic life with highly political organisation. 


Since years deeply engaged and passionate about future of african metropolis.
