Associate, Architecture and Urban Design
Klaudia is an Associate at SvN with over 19 years of experience in architecture, landscape and urban design. Her work focuses on the design of the public realm, open spaces, and streetscapes through an integrated approach. She has worked on both local and international projects that have changed and invigorated communities and created new public usage of open spaces while encouraging economic and cultural development.
Klaudia holds a Bachelor of Architecture (five-year professional degree) from the University of Toronto and a Master of Architecture from the Tokyo University of the Arts. She is the recipient of the prestigious Monbukagakusho Scholarship as well as the Canada Council for the Arts’ J.B.C. Watkins Award in Architecture. In her years of practice, she has worked on a diverse range of projects in art, architecture, and material development both practically and academically. Notable projects include: the development of a moisture reactive and kinetic seamless skin utilizing nano-fibres and three-dimensional weaving techniques for a solar façade; events such as The Table Festival—a Hong Kong food and public art event; the design of buildings for the University of Toronto and University of Ottawa; as well as a variety of projects while at Moriyama and Teshima Planners, which focused on ecological systems analysis and preservation. This collective experience has resulted in an interdisciplinary approach to her practice; one that is focused on design knowledge and navigates between large- and small-scale problem solving.
Klaudia is currently a member of the Technical Advisory team to Metrolinx and Infrastructure Ontario for the both the Ontario Line subway project (Toronto, ON) and the Hurontario LRT (Mississauga and Brampton, ON), where her role is to oversee the development of Reference Concept Designs and PSOS for landscape, streetscape, and public realm elements focusing on site integration around transit stations.
