LAX is an award winning experimental, urban and architectural think tank operating since 2011. It practices at the edge of architecture, urban planning, design, psychology and computation. The main focus of LAX is to conduct various studies, especially devoted to Interactive Architecture and Spatial Compensations in urban environment. At LAX we have an open attitude towards modern technologies, creative solutions and cooperation with specialists from various professions to put our projects into reality.

Within LAX we continuously conduct vital scientific projects dealing with the public space in cities. We accomplished projects such as “Do not ask, Take! How to personalize city” the urban performance encouraging people to grab and personalize a piece of the city the same way they arrange the info-sphere in their devices, “DIY_do it yourself_CITY” exploring a public understanding of what the city could look like, and recently “Interactive Fingers” – a prototype of an experimental interactive structure that responses to human motion.

As architects and researchers we have a positive experience of working in multidisciplinary group of people. We regularly host, lecture, teach and participate in international interdisciplinary events and workshops such as: Man|Machine 2014 in Pomeranian Science and technology Park, NO.HO.USE in Manggha Institute of Japanese art and technology in Krakow,Philips Lighting Workshop, A7 – Week with Architecture, Sredzka axis – masterplan of Lesnica in Wroclaw,  Wroclove Design Festival, Gdynia Design Days, Annual Arduino Day and more.

Our experience as architects in UK, Poland and recently in Netherlands, working in a renowned offices such as OMA or KCAP,  gave us a professional knowledge on various levels of design process. Furthermore we gained required knowledge about building interactive environments based on digital platforms, sensors, actuators and coding programs.

LAX is also an appreciated and awarded group winning international urban-architectural competitions, or recently obtaining a grant from Polish Ministry of Education, intended for scientific research in a field of Interactive Architecture.

arch. SEBASTIAN DOBIESZ
Graduating in 2011 from Wroclaw University of Technology, he defended the diploma work “PGR – The Greening Farm” based on the field of urban strategies for suburbs in big polish cities. He finds a fulfillment of his ambitions abroad, gaining a professional experience in Poland, UK, Finland, Spain and the Netherlands so far. In the office KCAP, he had the opportunity to work on large-scale masterplans in Russia and China. One of them was “HOUSING WITH A MISSION”, a project developed for VANKE, awarded at the international biennale of architecture and urbanism in Shanghai in 2012.
He is now conducting a research as a PhD candidate at Wroclaw University of Technology, devoted to a theme of Spatial Compensations in modern cities.

arch. ANNA GRAJPER
Graduated from the TU Wrocław, the Faculty of Architecture, architect and researcher of Interactive Architecture. Gained experience in Poland and abroad, at the Faculty of Architecture in Oulu/Finland. In 2011-2013, she worked in OMA(Office for Metropolitan Architecture) on the project BRYGHUSPROJEKTET, and in DeZwarteHond DZH where she took part in a winning project of a masterplan Anna’s Hoeve in Hilversum/NL.
Anna is currently working on various conceptual projects of Interactive Structures in Wrocław, where she studies a relationship between affordances of motion and human behaviour.
