At age eleven Jakub Galczynski developed a research project titled ‘ Aerodynamics of Architecture’ in which he constructed and tested various skyscraper forms in a wind tunnel. His outcomes developed an interest in architectural form. At Glenbrook North High School he was exposed to historic Chicago architecture, the traditional drafting table, and simple CAD. In these early years, Jakub studied the works of Antonio Gaudi, Alvar Aalto, Mies Van Der Rohe, Frank Lloyd Wright and Louis Sullivan. Weekends consisted of design courses at the Art Institute of Chicago and IIT Newhouse Program.
In 2005, Jakub enrolled into the Montana State University – Architecture Program. When Jakub was not in the studio, he was out rock climbing and exploring rock formations. Upon graduation Jakub Galczynski moved to Jackson Hole, Wyoming to begin his career.
