Aleks graduated from University of Westminster with First Class Honours. She has three years of experience in London practices and is currently working at AHMM. Before joining the LSA she divided her time between practising in a small studio and travelling around South America. The four months-long trip grounded her interest in the environmental impact of architecture which she started exploring in her 3rd year project. Her proposal tackled issues of urbanisation process and incorporated new methods of food production into the urban fabric. Apart from travelling, Aleks enjoys baking, hiking and surfing.
