Born in Kazan, Maria Lezhnina`s experience is particularly diverse, falling between landscape research projects, teaching knowledge of space to the children with the Finnish school ARKKI, and working for design practices in Switzerland, Italy, and Taiwan. This interdisciplinary background has triggered her interest in cross cultural reading of space. Indeed, today, her work aims at altering perception of environment, either through reflexive physicality or unusual architectural structure, being characterized by a deep-rooted interest in the relationship between architecture, landscape, and human perception. While her work has been exhibited in various venues, mainly Taiwan, China, Switzerland, and Italy, currently she is working on various large scale public art projects in Taiwan.
