Geometry, personality and space. 10 questions for Adam Korulczyk

17 of December '20

"10 Questions to..." is a series of short interviews with architects and female architects, to whom we address the same pool of questions. In today's installment of the mini-interview, Adam Korulczyk answered our ten questions.

Adam Korulczyk - while studying Interior Design at the National Academy of Fine Arts in Gdansk, he was interested in the relationship between building interiors and urban planning. He gained professional experience working in the Tricity, designing, among other things, the interior of the Hospital Emergency Ward at the City Hospital in Gdynia and in Warsaw, where he was involved in developing interiors in the area of corporate banking. In 2010, he founded his own company, KAG ARCHITECTURE, which provides specialized design in the areas of architecture, interiors, furniture, design and graphics.

1. architecture in three words...?

a. Geometry.
b. Personality.
c. Space.

2. the three most important buildings for you...?

a. Burj Al Arab, designed by Tom Wright, Dubai, United Arab Emirates.
b. Ciudad de las Artes y las Ciencias, proj.: Santiago Calatrava, Valencia, Spain.
c. Rail Baltica Ülemiste, proj.: Zaha Hadid Architects, Tallinn, Estonia.

3. the most important book on architecture...?

Vitruvius' treatise.

4. The most inspiring city and why...?

In my opinion, Dubai. In almost every architectural study you can find non-standard geometric solutions and unusual linear virtuosity interwoven with unique architectural details.

5. architect with whom you would like to design something and why...?

Patrik Schumacher. I am a fan of Zaha Hadid's deconstructivist architectural work.

6. hand-drawing or computer drawing?

Hand-drawn on a tablet.

7. mockup or 3D model?

Mock-up printed from a 3D model.

8. modernism or postmodernism?

Modernism. I prefer autonomously geometric architecture.

9. working after hours or sports?

"After hours" in my case is almost non-existent. The open mind works non-stop. Sometimes inspiration pops into my head in a state of deep relaxation. Regular sports allow me to disconnect from thinking about projects.

10 - Architecture or business?

Architecture in which, in addition to image and utility values, business is a factor.
