Zbigniew Oksiuta

Professor of Practice, School of Architecture

Zbigniew Oksiuta is an artist, architect and scientist experimenting with the possibility of designing biological structures. His work combines architecture, biology, physics and genetic engineering.
Oksiuta concentrates on reducing his research of space to the very necessary minimum: to the physical existence based primarily upon the verifiable physical and chemical parameters putting aside historical, social, urbanistic and aesthetic factors.
His projects such as "Spatium Gelatum" and "Breading Space" and "Space Garden" examine new soft technologies and biological materials which enable the development of new kind of living habitat in the biosphere and in space
