Joanna Magdalena Pracka

Atelier JO.Pracka NATURE IN THE ARCHITECTURE  is a place where subjects related to nature and architecture filling public and private spaces are mutually intertwined. This expression defines the character of my work, on which I put a lot of energy and commitment. Nature is the inspiration for emerging ideas that are completed in the form of new projects. With computer graphics I express my interests, style, design and „artistic airs„. Landscape art and emotional perception of nature by a human is the leitmotiv entwined in each created paper.

My name is Joanna Magdalena Pracka. I am the landscape architect. Master’s degree of Landscape Architecture I graduaded at the University of Life Sciences  in Poznan in 2014. In the same field of knowledge I got an experience at the Estonian University of Life Sciences in Tartu for half a year. During the master studies I undertook work experience in the office of landscape architecture and plant nursery called Albanian Gardens in Istanbul. Additional training and workshops as the Summer School of Design in Stone or the Academy of Sustainable Development Management and Sendzimir Foundation Academy in the field of sustainable water management has increased my knowledge and skills.My master thesis received a distinction from the Governor of Wielkopolska in the XXIV edition of the competition MY WIELKOPOLSKA in Poland.

An additional advantage of my activity are three international internships made in 2014/2015 in a position of landscape architect: in the architectural office Creantes Studio Artes in Biassono/Milan in Italy under the guidance of a specialist, the architect Giorgio Beretta; in the landscape architectur office Monsberger Gartenarchitektur  in Graz in Austria under the guidance of professionalist Gertraud Monsberger; in Tim Austen Garden Designs in Wicklow in Ireland under the guidance of well known and famous landscape architect Tim Austen, who won several show gardens.

Nevertheless, I gained the most experience working for three years (2015-2018) in a company designing and constructing the gardens – Gartenbau Kerschdorfer  in Austria, Stumm. In this company, not only gardens play a key role, but also natural ponds for swimming. I had the opportunity to run the project from the beginning to the end – starting from talking with clients, through the design phase, creating a cost estimate, signing the contract, organizing the construction and finalizing the project. I gained valuable skills under the supervision of a professional known as Johannes Kerschdorfer. His company is one of the biggest in Tyrolean Region of Austria.

As a part of the hobby and additional activity I write articles covering issues of shaping space, garden design, public spaces design and therapy gardens. I encourage you to read ARTICLES tab.

During my education at the University of Life Sciences I undertook numerous of architectural competitions (PROJECTS tab), social action and workshops related to improving the quality of public space (Change your backyard”). I worked as a volunteer at the pilot project „Count On Greenery” investigating public opinion on the quality of greenery in the city. I get involved in events related to green and passive buildings, alteration of declining neighborhoods’ space. I attend the Garden Fair and numerous conferences related to landscape architecture.

Currently I run a private business. I am looking continuously and fearlessly for opportunities of progression in different places in the world.  I invite you to familiarize yourself with the scope of my activities in OFFER tab and contact to find solutions for the development of the space and further, fruitful cooperation (CONTACT tab).
