The intent of this webpage is to organize research, regarding designs of outdoor observation design.  Jakub Galczynski views design as a social tool, to promote natural experiences and educate a community of surrounding wildlife.  Most often, Jakub seeks professionals with greater experiences in the fields of ecology to influence his work. He values environmental initiatives and believes they can achieve greater impact through design. Jakub’s current interests lie in astronomy and wildlife observation.

Jakub Galczynski is a member of Love Schack Architecture , a design team specializing in natural materials and high performance building systems. Apart from the architecture practice, Jakub explores topics such as natural geometry, biomimicry, responsive behaviors, structural optimization, form, energy and etc. The intent is to find smarter and healthier environmental solutions for design.
