Zuzana joined SCABAL in 2019 to follow her interest in education architecture developed during her MA at the Bartlett, UCL where her project for an Intercultural School in Lisbon sprung from theatre-based educational methodologies, derived from collaborative work with children from her former primary school in Košice, Slovakia. The project was subsequently displayed at London Sketchbook Festival and recognised in a School Without Classrooms architectural competition organised by Archasm.
Prior to joining SCABAL, Zuzana worked with Foster + Partners in London and Tim Hupe Architekten in Hamburg, Germany, where she volunteered as a stage designer/prop maker on an adaptation of Frankenstein for University Players, a theatre workshop at the University of Hamburg.
Zuzana’s interest in interdisciplinary design practices started at the University of Kent during her BA, where she won RIBA South East Student prize and a President’s Medal nomination and made a film Matter Meaning & Merry, which was screened at the Borders Art Festival in Venice and Rome. The drawings for this project won first prize in the student hand category in the KRob Architectural Delineation competition.
