Malgorzata Zboinska

PhD, Researcher, Creative Leader for ACE Robotic Fabrication Laboratory, Architecture and Civil Engineering, Division of Architectural Theory and Methods

Malgorzata Zboinska holds a PhD in digital architectural design. In 2016-2019 she led an artistic research project on new esthetic approaches to designing interactive architectural environments - 'Architectural Convertibles', funded by the Swedish Research Council Vetenskapsrådet. Currently, she is driving the development of the ACE Robotic Fabrication Laboratory as its Creative Leader and Main Robot Instructor. Since 2018 and until mid-2020, she is also a Work Package Leader in the innovation project on robotic 3D printing using bio-based composites 'Would Wood', funded by Sweden’s Innovation Agency Vinnova. She is an EU-licensed architect, a member of the Swedish Association of Architects and the National Chamber of Architects of Poland.

Malgorzata’s research stems from digital architectural design, spreading over a broad range of related themes, including applied esthetics, craft, material agency, creative robotics and digital fabrication, user experience design, esthetics of interaction and responsive architecture design.

Malgorzata regularly presents her research results in renowned journals and conferences in Europe, North America and Asia. She also exhibited her design research work in Sweden and abroad, with key exhibitions embracing "Voluminous Architectural Substance" at the Tempe Center for the Arts in the USA in 2019, "Haptic Flesh" at Dutch Design Week 2018, "Architectural Convertibles" at the Design Computing Conference 2018 in Prague, "Embodiments" at AHA! Festival of Art and Science 2014 in Gothenburg, Sweden, and "Voronoi Cupola" at Gdynia Design Days 2014 in Poland.
