Design a new concept of small-scale architecture with the second annual Microhomes competition
We’d like to take this opportunity to introduce the 3rd prize winner of our London Internet Museum competition - Michał Daniszewski from Poland!
London Internet Museum 3rd prize winner - Michał Daniszewski from PolandI am a student in my final year at the Department of Architecture and Fine Arts at the Krakow Academy. Furthermore, I participate in postgraduate studies concerning digital technologies in architecture design at the University of Technology in Krakow. Six months ago I started a job at URBA Architects, an architectural office in Krakow, where together with a team, I have the opportunity to participate in numerous interesting projects and improve my skills in architecture design.
During my studies, I worked on varied projects, from a single-family house to large urban planning assumptions. I like projects where I can experiment with a building’s form, which results from my fascination with parametric design. While working at URBA Architects, I had an opportunity to participate in the design process of one of the largest BMW showrooms in Central Europe, as well as modification of a monumental fort for the purpose of a youth hostel in connection to the upcoming World Youth Day in Krakow, and more.
Architecture should be a unity of what’s rational and functional, with what’s sensual and beautiful. I think that modern construction developments reflect the creative possibilities of people. So for me, being a young architect, architecture is also a challenge.
I take part in conceptual architectural contests because a “concept-related competition” can be an interesting challenge.
Do it! In the worst-case scenario, you will gain another interesting project for you portfolio.
