Aleksandra Wasilkowska (born in 1978 in Warsaw) - polish architect, artist, and a theatre set designer [1]. She runs a studio specializing in the design of bazaars, schools, art galleries, cultural centers, parks, exhibitions, theatrical installations, and sets, as well as urbanist projects and city strategies. She represented Poland at the XII Venice Biennale of Architecture [2] (together with artist Agnieszka Kurant). She belongs to the National Chamber of Polish Architects of Mazovia District (unlimited construction license no W/25/2015) and to the Warsaw Department of Association of Polish Architects (vice-president between 2012 and 2015).

She is an author of books among which are "City is the City. Aporia", "Warsaw as an emergent structure", "Emergency Exit"[3], a series of books called "Shadow Architecture"[4], as well as other books discussing the space functioning on the margin of general attention like bazaars, street trade, public toilets, waste yards, cemeteries. The publications, experiments, and research concerning self-organization in the public space and links between architecture and art have influenced her architectural projects.

Her theatrical sets and installations are in public and private collections eg. The Black Island [5] (National Gallery of Zachęta in Warsaw). She had exhibitions in Guggenheim Museum in New York, Museum of Modern Art Museum in Warsaw and the Centre for Contemporary Arts in Warsaw.

Since the beginning of her architect’s and publicist’s practice she has been focused on the socially most important aspects of the architecture: inclusiveness, the democratization of space, accessibility [6]. Her most important projects are: the revitalization of Bakalarska Bazaar in Warsaw (a place for over 25 various nationalities to trade between each other), Ptasia Bazaar in Wrocław, Różycki Bazaar and the surrounding residential quarter in Warsaw, Babski Bazaar in Biała Podlaska, Błonie Bazaar (currently under construction).
