Alexandra Timpau

Alex (1985, Romania) is an architect, architectural photographer and sound designer. She is interested in interdisciplinary projects which range in scale but also in focus, from installations to performance and photography.

She studied architecture and urban planning in Romania, but after finishing her studies and moving to Prague, she was hypnotized by the practice of live audio coding. She soon joined Kolektiv, an international open group of artists working in the field of algorithmic visuals and electronic music, performing at various places in the Czech Republic and abroad.

In her architectural practice, she collaborated on many projects, including research into urban visual smog and homelessness (OUT-HABIT – Tbilisi Biennale).
