Lukasz Stanek graduated in architecture and philosophy at the universities in Kraków (PL), Weimar (D), and Münster (D). He has collaborated with several architectural offices in Germany, Italy, and the Netherlands. After a research at the Faculties of Architecture at the Eidgenössische Technische Hochschule Zürich (CH) and the Delft University of Technology (NL), he has recently submitted the dissertation “Henri Lefebvre and the Concrete Research of Space: Urban Theory, Empirical Studies, Architecture Practice”. Currently, he is a researcher at the Chair for Architecture Theory TU Delft, and at the Department of Theory at the Jan van Eyck Academie, Maastricht (NL). His research interests in Henri Lefebvre straddle philosophy, planning, and architecture. He has published articles on city building, mass media, and the production of space in former state-socialist cities like Nowa Huta, Poland. His most recent publications include contributions to books “Space, Difference, Everyday Life: Henri Lefebvre and Radical Politics”, edited by K. Goonewardena et al., London: Routledge, 2008; and “Visual and Material Performances in the City”, edited by L. Frers and L. Meier, L., Aldershot: Ashgate, 2007. He was the co-founder and editor of the first issue of Footprint - Delft School of Design Journal.
