About Malgorzata Maria (Gosia) Olchowska

born in Bartoszyce

lives and works in Belgium (Antwerp/Gent).

‘As an architect, I am mostly focused on drawings, models, collages. As a printmaker, I am mostly focused on architecture: buildings, constructions, cities, scale, landscapes, development and growth. These two disciplines are continually crossing in my life. The starting point for my drawings are stories I come across when visiting places. My drawings are intended to describe them.’

Gosia obtained Master of Architecture diploma from TU Delft (NL) in 2007 and since then she was working as an architect at De Vylder Vinck Tailieu, Murmuur and Bovenbouw architectuur.

At this moment she is teaching at Ghent University, KU Leuven Campus Sint Lucas Ghent and Rotterdam Academy of Baukunst. Between 2017 and 2018 she was a guest teacher at RISEBA, Riga. 

Between 2009 and 2018 she studied printmaking at the Academy of Fine Arts in Gent.
