Palaščák / Šimonová studio
“Our studio aims to cultivate the students’ critical and conceptual thinking and their capacity to design non-conformist innovative solutions which have the power to foster social change and quality of life, public space and urban environments. We nurture fresh ideas and approaches which grow from site-specific conditions and individual “basic research” of each student. We encourage students to be open-minded, find their own fields of interests and ways of working.”
