Urszula is a multidisciplinary designer-maker with background in film and photography who is currently based in Glasgow.
She graduated with BA(Hons) in Interior Design from The Glasgow School of Art in June 2019 and continued her education at Master level.
Some of her interests include mid-century furniture, brutalist architecture and exhibition design. Her approach to design focuses on experimentation and playfulness aiming for bold, minimal yet multilayered outcomes.
The undertaken project explores the potential of adaptive reuse of architectural structure, a brutalist car park located in the centre of Glasgow, by integrating new technologies in proposed new function of an exhibition space.
The research focused of hyperreality and digital technologies in context of contemporary art and design practice and how these can positively affect the physical spaces of a building and allow for effective and multidisciplinary user experience. Extensive examination of contemporary practitioners allowed for forming possible visual outcomes of proposed multisensory environment. Experimentation with various digital interfaces was concluded in speculating exciting, multi-layered environment.
Exploration of the chosen architectural space resulted in proposal focused on flexibility and adaptability of a space and allowed to form a narrative that takes into the account the original function of the building.
Appling digital technologies combined with temporary special design allowed for the dialog between the space’s digital and physical elements that have a possibility to be adapted to a variety of architectural typologies.
