Full Description

Robert Konieczny, founder and principal of KWK Promes, in Poland, specialises in projects renowned for inventive concepts and unique design. His works examine closely the nature and interpretations of spatial journeys for the viewer or those who inhabit the space, be it for residential works, public buildings, or cultural festivals and exhibitions, such as the Venice Biennale. The firm’s work with kinetic architecture as exemplified in the 2018 Quandrant House is an outstanding example of fusing seamless design principles with an inventive concept, namely a movable structure that both catches light and creates a uniquely experiential environment. A leader in industry innovation, Konieczny and KWK Promes was awarded the World Architecture Festival Award for the best building in 2016.
