Palce Lizać

Barbara Nawrocka and Dominika Wilczyńska


Architects, graduates of the Cracow University of Technology. Wilczyńska is also a graduate of the Cracow Academy of Fine Arts. In 2012, they established the palce lizać collective combining architectural, artistic and social activities. Since 2015, they are running their own architecture office miastopracownia. In their work, they focus on the local aspect and social dimension of design. They are regularly involved in paricipatory activities. With their designs, they are looking for answers to question about the vision of a better, fairer city. In their design processes, they are trying to include experts in humanities and social sciences.
