Wojciech Maciejewski

Architect, musician and coffee addict.

My name is Wojciech Maciejewski. I have scored a Master's degree in the field of Architecture and Urban Planning from Poznan University of Technology. I conducted independent research on topics such as illumination design and architectural acoustics. Since then I have been working as an architect with particular interest in energy efficiency and energy use in buildings. Currently, I am a PhD candidate in the Institute of Building Design, Cracow University of Technology. As a PhD student, I am working on the impact of Building Information Modelling (BIM) on the design process, specifically simulation-informed modelling.

The pursuit of my master's and doctoral degrees has helped me to develop my organizational and analytical skills, as well as a nuanced understanding of research methodology. Furthermore, my professional background have provided me with substantial experience communicating and collaborating with people at all levels across disciplines within industry, successfully serving as a member of a team, and working with diverse groups of people.

January 2014 - Present (> 1 year) || Zakopane, Poland

Together with my best friend, in January 2014 we have founded a small ski school in Zakopane (Poland). This way, one of my favorite hobbies turned into a fulfilling seasonal job. Spending time on a ski slope is a perfect way to have a break from the computer and meet some new interesting people.

At this point our start-up manages also a ski lift and equipment rental shop. We also have started to cooperate with local hotels and restaurants, aiming to create a small but self-sufficient ski resort.
