Architectural consultation for A&B students

05 of May '21

Would you like advice on your project? Don't know how to solve a detail, or maybe you need a tip on the design of the facade? We invite Architecture students to participate in a new, unique A&B series - project consultations with well-known Polish architects in the pages of our magazine.

I [...] highly recommend the Italian magazine Abitare, and in it the S.O.S. section (nowadays probably non-existent, unfortunately). Young architects would send their projects to the editors and present their concerns, and the editors would ask prominent architects to analyze the problem. Always two different architects reviewed on the same project. [...] This was once recommended to me by my best teacher Vasa Perovic, and I also recommend it to everyone - the S.O.S. section is in Italian and English. Maybe it's time for a Polish version of this section? - wrote Borys Wrzeszcz, one of the winners of the Architectural Award of the Wielkopolska Region in the Young Artist category, answering our questionnaire in the series "10 questions to...".

Inspired by this proposal, we decided to take up the challenge and create a similar section in A&B by inviting Polish creators.

how to submit projects?

So, if you are an architecture student and would like to get feedback on your project - please submit! Just send a message to with a note in the title: Consultation with A&B.

In order for your work (not just your diploma!) to be looked at by our invited architects, the materials sent should include:

  • a brief description of the project, general data (name of the university, name of the instructor, type of work), questions/information about what in the project is difficult or particularly problematic for you, what you need help with, what raises your doubts,
  • necessary technical drawings and visualizations in a size that allows their publication, i.e., in 300 dpi resolution and 20 cm base for visualizations and photos (.jpg, .tif, .eps),
  • contact information (phone number and e-mail address).

From among the submissions, every month we will select one or two, which we will submit for consultation, and then, along with comments from architects - we will publish in the magazine and on the web portal. Projects for the next consultation can be submitted until October 27 this year.

who will evaluate the projects?

Thefirst project was evaluated in our pages by Oskar Grąbczewski of the Katowice-based studio OVO Grąbczewscy Architekci: "Library of instruments" designed by Bernadetta Budzik.

Subsequent works will be consulted by the originator of the series Borys Wrzeszcz of the Poznan office Wrzeszcz Architekci and Szczepan Wroński of the Warsaw studio WXCA.


Borys Wrzeszcz completed his undergraduate studies at the Poznan University of Technology, during which he studied under Vasa Perović in Ljubljana, Slovenia, as an exchange student. He undertook his master's studies at the Royal Danish Academy of Fine Arts in Copenhagen, and spent six months in the Chilean capital as part of a university exchange. His time in Santiago inspired him to create a project to prevent the polarization of Chilean society as part of his master's thesis. This project won the award for one of the best diplomas defended at Copenhagen University in 2015. After graduating, the architect returned to Poznan, where he and his dad, Mariusz Wrzeszcz, form the Wrzeszcz Architects studio. This year he won the Architectural Award of the Wielkopolska Region in the Young Creator category.

Szczepan Wroński

Szczepan Wronski is a graduate of the Faculty of Architecture and Urban Planning at the Warsaw University of Technology, and co-founder of the Warsaw studio WXCA. As he emphasizes, he is a proponent of using subtle architectural means, which at the same time affect the audience most strongly and emphasize the function of a given building and the uniqueness of the context. The WXCA team has won many first prizes in architectural competitions in recent years, including for concepts for: Museum of the Greater Poland Uprising 1918-1919 in Poznań, Museum of the Eastern Lands of the Former Republic of Poland in Lublin, revitalization of Pole Mokotowskie in Warsaw, Museum of the Princes Lubomirski in Wrocław. One of the largest museum complexes of his co-authorship - the Museum of the Polish Army and the Museum of Polish History - is being built on Warsaw's Citadel.

We look forward to your submissions!
