Having achieved the Master Degree at the Technical University in Delft, I am
looking forward to starting off my professional path as soon as possible. I am
an enthusiastic young architect with a wide spectrum of architectural interests.
I like approaching project’s challenges from many perspectives, so that the formal expression of design emerges from understanding of the social, cultural
and historical context. I try to be rigorous with this set principles throughout
the whole design process, with a particular fascination for the detail stage.

Tile manufacturing in Biskupia Górka

The re-appropriation of the former primary school, a standardised building from the 60s, into a tile manufactory aimed to bring crafts
and small industry back to the city in order to revitalise the poor and problematic area in Gdansk. Moreover, by being the place of creation of new city mosaics it pays tribute to the qualitative, multi-layered city patterns that balance the (defined in the research) monotony
and austereness. A turn towards crafts will not be only symbolic. The traditional tile making process values slow pace routines, hands
on work and time taken to create quality; a remedy for chaos in the polish cities.

Through exploring the topic of standardisation, inspired by Aldo van Eyck theory on the ‘Complexity of composition’ and his fascination
with Paul Klee’s drawings, I created on my own pattern of rectangular, non-symmetrical module tiles. The pattern consists of three types
of double-sided tiles, which can form together an unlimited number of compositions. None of the tiles are the same - slight differences in
size, color or texture are a natural effect of a non-industrial process of making. Regarding the formal expression, inspiration came from
the work of Ani Albers and Jan Schoolhoven, their geometrical, minimalist patterns using surfaces and relief expressing depth.

Basing on the same pattern, two different types of tiles were employed within the structural grid of the existing and additional buildings
of the tile manufactory.

Austerity of the created open spaces in the existing building asked for a counterpoise: a relief. The gap beneath the window was filled
with the handmade ceramic tiles fired in a traditional kiln. The new detail unifies the vast areas and helps to read it as a whole. Also,
because of their conduction qualities, tiles were employed to enhance the heating system.
