Marianna Janowicz

Marianna Janowicz is an architect, writer, educator and a member of feminist design collective Edit. Her project about foraging and rights to land was selected for the main exhibition at the 2019 Oslo Architecture Triennale and her writing has been published in the Architectural Review, New York Review of Architecture and e-flux Architecture. She teaches design and architectural history at Central Saint Martins, Welsh School of Architecture and the London School of Architecture. Marianna also created an architectural walking tour which she runs regularly for the charity Open City.

For her residency, Marianna will explore homes as individual domestic ‘islands’ and their relation to natural resource depletion and the climate crisis. Questioning the strict reliance on personal appliances – such as washing machines, dryers and ovens – and individualised notions of both comfort and labour, the project will connect domestic practices with the wider infrastructures and resources they rely on.
