About

Marcin Mostafa & Natalia Paszkowska (WWAA) and Karsten Huneck & Bernd Trümpler (office for subversive architecture) chaired by Nigel Coates, Head of Architecture Department, Royal College of Art. WWAA, founded by Natalia Paszkowska and Marcin Mostafa in 2006, won the competition to design the Polish pavilion at the World Expo 2010 in Shanghai. Alongside commissions for housing and interiors, the practice also undertakes graphic, furniture and clothing design projects. The practice recently won a competition for a cultural centre in a modernist housing estate in Warsaw, based around the concept of an urban farm. The office for subversive architecture / KHBT is a cross discplinary studio founded in London in 2002 by Chilean-born Karsten Huneck and his German partner Bernd Trümpler. Projects range in scale from the makeover of a redundant railway signal box in London, to the creation of a Kunsthülle in Liverpool and a large scale installation in a condemned swimming pool in Leeds. The practice was awarded a special commendation in the 2009 UK Young Architect of the Year Award. Part of POLSKA! YEAR
