2014: VARP NY: Jakub Szczęsny (PL)

Jakub Szczęsny’s work spans architecture, art and design. These parallel practices merge in projects like Keret House, an installation narrowly inserted between two buildings in Warsaw, Poland, whose drawings and model were recently acquired by MoMA.  Szczęsny is co-member of the Centrala Designer’s Task Force, an award-winning multidisciplinary collaboration platform involved in critical urban revitalization projects. He has co-curated the Synchronicity architecture festival and an exhibition on social design for Gdynia Design Days. His recent projects focus on social conflicts and how they are reflected in public space. Szczęsny is based in Warsaw, Poland and is in residence at Triangle from September–October 2014.
