BUDCUD is a contemporary architecture practice led by Mateusz Adamczyk and Agata Wozniczka, it has been operating from Cracow, Poland since 2011. The office is concerned with exploring contemporary conditions through spatial design, furthering architecture’s agency and currency. The name BUDCUD is indicative of our area of expertise and our design strategy. ‘Bud’ is a prefix that was added to many construction company’s names during the period of early Polish capitalism. While ‘bud’ is derived from the Polish word meaning ‘to build’, ‘cud’ on the other hand, means miracle, a wonder! The combination highlights our desire to imagine architecture as a promise of multi-threaded journeys and interactions, informal activities and unpredicted events.
