Challenges and dreams are two words that have been defining my life and my choices for as long as I can remember. Exploring, being curious and keeping busy is my definition of happiness. During my design studio classes in the third year, my tutor, Mr. Slawomir Kowal told me „Work so hard that people think the aliens did it.” This humorous phrase struck me more than one would expect and since that moment I decided that I would do everything I can to fulfill this statement. I look forward to continuing my research on issues in the field of design optimization and the role of structural analysis in the design process. I am currently working on similar projects during my master’s degree at TU Delft and I believe cooperation with the best specialists and experts in the world gives us  a fresh outlook on our interests and bring our research to a whole new level. My plan for the upcoming years also includes focusing on new effective types of structures. What inspires me the most in architecture is that, through close cooperation with the latest technology and computer techniques, it is able to help solve emerging social problems such as overpopulation, poor living conditions, the ecological crisis. I would be honored if I could be part of the environment that shapes the history of modern architecture and I am eager to work on something greater than all of us while being a part of an international team. 


MVRDV, Rotterdam, NL, Assistant Designer

My tasks included taking active part in the design process at all project stages, diagram-making, final detailed rhino models of the conception followed by the renderings (+Vray), laser-cutting, working strictly with the building code to verify technical aspects of the project. After succeeding at the previous projects, my studio Director offered me joining the competition team for the city of Prague as a reward for my hard work. Project and its details are strictly confidential, but my role includes full time responsibility for both the design development as well as final production.
