Architecture Competition Romantic Cabin For Two 3rd prize winners – Grzegorz Mączka and Marta Mączka

We’d like to take the opportunity to introduce you to the 3rd prize winners of our "Romantic Cabin For Two" competition – Grzegorz Mączka and Marta Mączka from Poland!

Grzegorz Mączka and Marta Mączka from Poland

We are couple of architects, based in Kraków. The scope of our activity includes the creation of local and international projects.

Brief information about the projects that you/your company have been involved with. For instance, what scale have you focused on/preferred, any significant projects where the company/ individuals have been involved?

We are involved in projects of different scales. A priority of ours is to find the best answers for architecture questions. We have taken part in plenty of domestic and international competitions, e.g. The Art Gallery in Mertola, The Baltic Way Memorial Building in Riga, and Expansion of The Art Gallery in Kraków.

What does architecture mean to you and what is the role of an architect in your society?

Architecture is a way to find the right frame for human activity. It helps to fulfil basic, as well as higher human needs: beauty, aesthetics, and harmony. The architect's goal is to find the best possible solutions using appropriate and well-founded ideas.

Why do you participate in architecture competitions?

By participating in architectural competitions, we learn the methods and ways of finding architectural ideas. It`s always surprising to find many different solutions for one location.

What advice would you give to individuals who struggle to decide whether it would be beneficial for them to participate in architecture competitions?

Taking part in a competition, especially in an international one, allows you get to know the different points of view of other participants. It develops creativity and your own research. Additionally, an awareness of possible awards motivates creative effort.
