Jakub Szczęsny

Jakub Szczęsny (1973) is the first Polish architect who's project, Keret House, was included in MoMA's permanent collection in New York. He works on the verge of architecture, art and design, using building and semi-industrial technologies as matter for artistic expression. His installations can be found in places with complex socio-historical context like Palestine (The Lace in The Garden of Nations), Israel (Tamaguchi Park in Bat Yam), USA ( UFO Chicken coop in Saint Louis Science Center) and Poland (Aureola in Wrocław). In parallel with art projects, he runs his own architecture office SZCZ in Warsaw (www.szcz.com.pl) and teaches in The School of Form in Poznań, apart from lecturing in such institutions as IAAC, Bezalel School of Architecture, FAU, and Warsaw Institute of Technology. His works can be found in private and public collections.
