Crab Houses Multifuncional complex

On the vast plain of the Silesian Lowlands, one magical mountain stands alone, covered in fog of mystery, towering over the picturesque town of Sobotka. There, amidst natural landscapes and legendary location, the Crab Houses complex: a research centre, is planned to be. As a part of town's revitalisation project, it is supposed to unleash creativity and innovativeness. The place brings together scientists, artists and local community. The shape of the pavilions is inspired by crabs entering rippling sea of grass. They will be illuminated at night, resembling fireflies hovering over the town.

I draw poetics from the sources, nature-based organicity, and build on the achievements of modern technology and new materials, operating light, subtle forms, but not devoid of dynamics... Context is important, because my area of action is both architecture and design, their correlation, interaction... Both the inside and the outside are important. For the design environment is just as important as the architecture is for the design which fills it... Currently, I am experimenting with organic forms, which allow us to get closer to the natural world...
