Danica Pišteková

…finds herself in-between textile and architecture, intuitive and logical, soft and hard…

Danica Pišteková was born in Šaľa, Slovakia. After finishing fashion design at a high school in Trenčín, she continued with the study of architecture at Academy of Fine Arts and Design in Bratislava, where she developed her interest in problems relating to the body, soft architecture and the relationship between clothing and space. Between 2013 and 2017, she worked on own doctoral research within this field. During her studies, she took a part in several workshops, study and research stays abroad (Plymouth University (2011), Center for Information Technology and Architecture (CITA) in Copenhagen (2016)). Together with friends, she also runs a creative platform WOVEN, which deals with temporary spatial installations, and organizes educational activities for students.

Danica currently leads a studio at the Department of Architecture at AFAD in Bratislava called Studio of Architexture: On Bodies and Space.
