Wiktoria is an architectural researcher and designer who is currently based in London. Her primary interests lie in user-orientated design, particularly interventions that work alongside and support women as well as the wider communities.
She completed her BSc studies at the University of Reading in 2020 and since has been intrigued by people's psychological responses to their immediate surroundings. Fascinated by this topic, she wrote her dissertation on the unconscious use of urban spaces and how this impacts the architect's role, for which she was nominated for the RIBA President Dissertation Medal 2020. Subsequently, she has looked for ways of expanding her knowledge of user-orientated architecture by getting involved in competitions and workshops.
Working for architectural firms in London, Wiktoria has continuously been working on several projects based in Soho, where she has gained insight into the importance of sensitivity when integrating contemporary architecture within contexts of delicate and complex heritage status, as well as a vibrant, outspoken community.
