The structures designed by Stefan J. Medwadowski are characterized by the conscious effort to define space and fulfill function in an aesthetically pleasing manner. His projects have involved a variety of structural systems, including thin shells in concrete and wood, and spatial or grid systems in steel, concrete, and timber.
