Katarzyna Berent

Welcome to my portfolio site.

I am an architect and graphic designer, recently graduated with a Master Degree in Architecture.

Over the past few years I have gained work experience in fields of architecture, graphic design and film post-production, as well as organised and took part in many workshops.

My interests include analysing the ways cities work and discovering what elements and processes shape them. I also enjoy exploring history of modernist architecture and utopian architecture theories.
