Maciej Rydz, Olgierd Jagiełło. JEMS Architects

JEMS Architects is an architecture studio founded by Maciej Rydz and Olgierd Jagiełło in 1988, but the team that formed the studio has been working together continuously since the early 1980s.

JEMS, which began as an independent practice at a time of democratic change in Poland, joined the push for the restoration of Polish architectural culture. Currently eight owners and partners form the core of the team.

The cooperation between partners carried out through the office-workshop formula, in which all JEMS staff participate, offers an inspiring space for debates and searches, for the exchange of ideas and points of view. JEMS is a place for open discussion and debate. This is our core value.

They treat reality as a fabric in the creative process and as a framework for their activities. They try to read its complexity through a filter of culture, history and tradition, through the context of the place. They seek inspiration in this multi-layered impression of reality, as well as in the limitations and conflicts inherent to our times.

They normally work in areas that often do not offer any possibility of reaching a quick, unambiguous and synthetic answer to the design problem. They have never had a universal method, a strategy.

Its architecture avoids dazzling with form, seeking the essence of things as much as the things themselves. They refer to timeless things: order, mass, the fascination with the natural properties of materials, light, the passage of time, proportions and the rules that govern the structure of form.
