Kamil’s work and research centres around migration studies, non-western epistemologies and the human body. He explores these themes with architectural models, digital reconstruction and installation.
Kamil Dalkir is a tutor, together with Marina Otero Verzier and Ippolito Pestellini Laparelli, of architecture design studio ADS8: Data Matter: Digital Networks, Data Centres & Posthuman Institutions. The ADS aims to investigate a possible architectural agency in designing for data and imagining the spaces and aesthetics of a new human and non-human cohabitation.
Kamil holds a degree in Architecture from the University of Westminster, a Master’s degree in Robotics from King's College London and a Master’s degree in Architecture from the Royal College of Art. He is currently studying for a PhD in Architecture at the RCA, focusing on the Architecture of Law in the context of the migrant crisis.
