Young Polish architecture

Once a decade we publish an issue about young Polish architects and female architects. The last one was published in 2012. The young in architecture are those under the age of forty or so. We look at the new generation and ask about the biggest challenges they face in their daily professional practice. We look at how architecture, design trends, and peri-professional circumstances have changed over this decade. There are reflections on shifts of meaning in the debate, changes in attitudes towards the profession.

Getting started in this profession has never been easy, and the road to independence, well, quite risky. We do observe brilliant careers from time to time, but usually building a professional position is paid for with arduous hard work, full of sacrifices, sacrifices and struggles. For this, the first success, winning a competition, a good order taste delicious, emphasize everyone with whom I talk on various occasions.

We keep our fingers crossed for the young Polish design scene!
It is in their studios that our tomorrow is designed.
