Karolina Michalik (1991) graduated from the Social Design master program at Design Academy Eindhoven in 2018 with a background in architecture. Her interest is in subverting underwritten rules, codes and hierarchies of modern society by unmasking and dismantling their visual and spatial embodiments and in turn developing approaches for shaping collaborative built environments. In fall 2019 she took part in the NeverNever school and resulting publication with Spolka collective in Kosice, Slovakia, where she continued her focus and field research into informal building practices and their potential in disrupting aesthetics of commodification. She currently resides in Brussels, reconstructing second hand greenhouses for use by local farming organisations.
