About me

Chaos manager, facilitator and madness coordinator. Katarzyna is a landscape architect based in Warsaw, Poland. Since 2015 she has been a member of the editorial board in Magazyn Miasta (Cities Magazine) while editing a column that focuses on the urban situation in different countries worldwide. She also curated an exhibition “Design in public space. Change” (2015) and "Design in public space. Do we have a problem?" (2017) at Zamek Cieszyn, a center of research and documentation of culture and design in Cieszyn, Poland. Katarzyna has been a conference coordinator for reSITE for nearly 5 years between years 2012-2016 where together with her colleagues they tried to connect leaders across sectors to collaborate in order to create a city that is more livable, competitive and resilient for the next generation than it is for this one. In 2016 and 2017 she has produced, together with Canal 180, series of short video interviews with architects and designers (under reSITE and Element Talks logos). In her design work as a landscape architect, she is mostly focused on creating public spaces that are accessible, functional and attractive for all future users. The social dimension and human interaction of design are her core interests.

  • “Design in public space. We have a problem?” is an exhibition devoted to the problem faced by all the cities of the world, namely the storage and processing of waste. At the exhibition and during the conference, we showed clever and well-designed ways of dealing with trash, reusing it, and educating how not to multiply it. Most of the projects presented at this year’s exhibition are in line with the new concept of circular economy, which concentrates on continuous reusing of resources. During this year’s edition of Design in Public Space we’re asking the following question: do we really have a problem? Our subjective selection of projects and initiatives, from Poland and abroad, proves that rubbish has potential. The actual problem is how to use it better.

  • The 2015 year edition of "Design in Public Space" talks about changes - large and small, initiated by residents as well as city authorities, with temporary but also long-lasting results. How do designers respond to the accelerated and changing rhythm of modern cities? Can the change be made? We don't know yet the correct answer, but we have more and more questions. Because every change is an unknown. We want to talk about it.
