Extended Senses Lab leader (at DEAF Rotterdam 22/05)

Tomasz Jaskiewicz is part of the Extended Senses Lab at DEAF Rotterdam on Thursday May 22. This lab takes place prior to the programme at De Brakke Grond.

Tomasz is an architect, interaction designer, academic researcher and educator. Since 2005 he holds Master degrees of architecture and urban design from the Gdansk University of Technology and TU Delft. He has practiced as architect and project manager, among others in the architecture firm ONL [Oosterhuis_Lénárd]. In 2013 he finished his PhD research at TU Delft, Architecture, Hyperbody section, where he developed an integrated design framework for development of evolving interactive architectural ecosystems.

Since 2011 until 2013 he had been the manager of TU Delft’s Architecture design laboratory “protoSPACE”, an innovative prototyping facility and think-tank where numerous research, commercial and educational projects on out-of-the-box applications of technology to architectural design have been developed. In 2013 he co-founded the company Hive Systems developing software solutions for design and deployment of interactive systems, Since February 2014 he is assistant professor of interactive design prototyping at the Industrial Design Engineering faculty of TU Delft.

In all his work, Tomasz transgresses the boundaries between conventionally established disciplines and practices. He explores new paths leading towards creation of architecture approached as a complex adaptive system. In this way, he aspires to produce artificial spatial ecologies operating in a proactive symbiosis with their human inhabitants and with the natural environment.
