Monika Codourey (-Wisniewska) is a registered architect in Warsaw/Poland and Berlin/Germany. She has received her degree in Architecture from the University of British Columbia in Canada. She pursued her postgraduate studies in the field of Information Architecture at the Department of Architecture, ETH Zurich and participated in VI Bauhaus Kolleg in Dessau in Germany. The range of her transdisciplinary projects combines her interests in Architecture, Urbanity and creative and critical use of ICT (information and communication technologies) for social/urban design.
The focus of her recent works lies on the relations between changing spacio-temporal structures of contemporary city and electronic networks. These relations she understands and investigates as hybrid action, intervention and possible places for socio-cultural production of information society. In particular she investigates transformation of socio-spacial mobilities in transit spaces such airports. She creates research-based works around spaces of `kinetic` subjects of different national and social status.
