Malgorzata Zboinska

Associate Professor at Architectural theory and methods

Malgorzata Zboinska is an Associate Professor in Architectural Design, Digital Technology 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, 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 is based on a hybrid crossover of architecture, art and technology. Specifically, it focuses on the exploration of alternative approaches to architectural design leveraging experimental applications of new media, computer-aided architectural design (CAAD) and computer-aided manufacturing (CAM) in connection with the material practice of architecture. The aim is to generate basic and applied knowledge relevant for architectural design, in areas such as new sustainable materials and circular design, digital craft, creative robotics and digital fabrication, aesthetic expression and materiality, user experience design, and interactive architecture design.

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.
