We are pleased to introduce the curators of DoFA '22 - architects Barbara Nawrocka and Dominika Wilczyńska from the Miastopracownia studio in Krakow, invited to co-create this year's edition.
The original curatorial program is a novelty in the long tradition of our festival. We hope that the presence and support of curators selected by the DoFA Program Council, who will work with us from now on in subsequent editions, will bring a different perspective on local architectural, urban and social problems, will allow us to broaden the perspective and increase the reach of DoFA, as well as to refresh the current formula, to enrich the festival program and to strengthen its interdisciplinarity. Together with this year's Curators, we cordially invite you to participate in DoFA '22 - Solidary City.
Architects running the Miastopracownia architectural office in Krakow. They design meeting spaces, preferably community and local centres, focusing on the social dimension of design. They have been involved in numerous participatory projects. They usually invite experts from the humanities and social sciences to their design processes. Their project Nanotourism received First Prize at the Ljubljana Design Biennale BIO50 (Ljubljana, Slovenia, 2014). They have also received awards in art, architecture and urban design competitions. Since 2021, they have co-created Bal Architektek, an initiative aimed at women in architecture and planning. Their texts have been published in Autoportret, Architektura Murator, A&B or Dérive, among others. In 2022, they were among the 11 Polish architectural studios co-creating the Young Poland exhibition at the Westival in Szczecin, held under the motto “The Future of Polish Architecture I Am Waiting For.” They designed the Polish Pavilion at the 23rd Milano Triennale in 2022.
