Malgorzata Zboinska

Senior Researcher at Architectural theory and methods

Malgorzata Zboinska is an Associate Professor in Digital Design, Fabrication and New Media Art. She is a licensed architect, a member of the Swedish Association of Architects and the National Chamber of Architects of Poland and an editorial board member of TAD | Technology, Architecture + Design, an international peer-reviewed journal published by Taylor & Francis and Routledge, dedicated to the advancement of research and scholarship in architecture, design and building technology. Since 2019, she is also responsible for the Robotic Fabrication Laboratory as its Creative Development Leader.

Malgorzata’s research reflects a hybrid crossover of art, architecture and technology. Specifically, it focuses on the development of creative digital design and fabrication methods for architecture, across the research fields of new media arts, CAD, CAM and CAE. The aim is to generate basic and applied knowledge relevant for applications in architectural practice, in areas such as new sustainable materials, digital craft, creative robotics and digital manufacturing, esthetics and user experience design, interactive architecture design and architectural research methodology.

Malgorzata's research is regularly presented in scientific journals and conferences. Her artistic work was showcased in Europe and North America, with major exhibitions at the Tempe Center for the Arts in the USA, Dutch Design Week in the Netherlands and Färgfabriken Center for Contemporary Art and Architecture in Sweden.
