Tomasz Mikołaj Konior – Konior Studio

Time in architecture

Should buildings be timeless? How important is their universality for adapting places to changing needs? Does functionalism remain functional? How to modernize modernism?
The answers to these questions will be revealed during Tomasz Konior's original presentation, along with examples from his own professional practice.


Tomasz Konior is an architect and urban planner. In 2019, he defended his doctoral thesis titled "The Evolution of Public Space in Buildings for Music." Since 1995, he has been running his own architectural firm, Konior Studio. He is the author of over 200 buildings, mainly for public use. He has gained particular recognition for his music-related projects, including the "Symphony" Center for Music Science and Education in Katowice, the seat of the National Symphony Orchestra of Polish Radio in Katowice with a grand concert hall recognized by the ECHO organization as one of the best in Europe, the School of Music Complex in Warsaw, and the Brno Philharmonic. Currently, after winning a competition in 2021, he is designing the New Campus of the Academy of Music in Krakow. His latest, award-winning project is the new reading rooms of the National Library in Warsaw, which received, among others, the Grand Prix title in the Warsaw Architectural Award competition and a nomination for the European Mies van der Rohe architectural award. Tomasz Konior has received over 80 architectural and individual awards.
