Jarosław Kozakiewicz is working on the borderline of art, science and architecture, professor at the Academy of Fine Arts in Warsaw, currently teaches at the Faculty of Design. He is graduate of the Faculty of Sculpture at the Warsaw Academy of Fine Arts and Cooper Union for the Advancement of Science and Art in New York. Kozakiewicz’s artistic and architectural projects are inspired by contemporary ecology, genetics, physics, astronomy and ancient cosmology concepts which are looking for references between micro-and macrocosmos.
His studies resulted, among other things, in utopian and critically acclaimed projects in the field of architecture, urban design and land art. Some of them were awarded at the prestigious architectural contests, inter alia, project for the Centre of Contemporary Art in Torun (2004) and the Museum of Modern Art in Warsaw (2007). In 2005, Kozakiewicz’s project won the international competition for the Park of Reconciliation located near Auschwitz-Birkenau Museum, and in 2007 he completed project Mars, multi-hectare land sculpture, transforming the landscape of what used to be brown coal mine around the lake Baerwald in Germany. Some of his other projects are proposals, often utopian, for ecological and sometimes symbolic solutions of spatial planning (Transfer, 2006) or architecture (Oxygen Towers, 2005). In 2006, Kozakiewicz represented Poland at the International Architecture Exhibition in Venice.
