Michał Sikorski – TŁO

In search of post-iconic architecture

 

Established in 2021, the architectural studio TŁO borrows design tools from workshops of urban planners, landscape architects, engineers, and activists, treating the design of spaces as a process of transforming the existing situation, rather than merely implementing a "vision" unilaterally. Presenting currently ongoing projects in the studio, primarily renovations, architects from TŁO will showcase their own interpretation of the paradoxes of contemporaneity and how they strive to create a contextual yet resolutely modern architecture from it.

 

Michał Sikorski

An architect-urbanist and founder of the Warsaw-based design studio TŁO. After obtaining his diploma in Paris (ENSAPLV), he collaborated for a decade with the Belgian architect Xaveer De Geyter (XDGA), leading numerous projects, including the masterplan for the emerging city-campus of Paris-Saclay (FR). From 2017 to 2021, he contributed to the spatial development visions of the University of Warsaw as the leading architect of the Office of Innovation in Academic Space (BIPA UW). In 2021, the monograph "Spaces of the University," of which he is a co-author, was published. In addition to design, he has conducted research and teaching, including at ETH Zurich and currently at WAPW in Warsaw. In 2023, he designed the exhibition "Poetics of Necessity" on the aesthetics and ethics of architecture using recycled materials, which won the main prize at the London Design Biennale. Currently, he focuses on implementing residential-recreational projects for private clients and projects for creative work and leisure in nature for higher education institutions.
