Zarya is an interdisciplinary designer and artist with a wide range of experience in the field of architecture, spatial and set design. This broad spectrum has allowed her to create, think and build in a variety of scales, typologies and clients. She has studied architecture and interior design, completing her MA at the Royal College of Art in London. During her course, she was selected as an exchange student with Kyoto City University of the Arts and spent a term in Japan, where she researched design for education, while exploring vernacular and sustainable building techniques in architecture, such as rammed earth and clay. Her final project for a new ceramics school on the grounds of the host university in Kyoto was awarded distinction upon graduation at the RCA and exhibited in multiple shows.
Zarya is always thrilled for exchange of ideas with diverse disciplines and curious of innovative and sustainable methods, materials and technologies. She enjoys engaging with projects that have a cultural, social and educational impact. As a creative, she is encouraged to be able to conceive processes, tell stories and provoke interactions through her designs. Zarya is a firm believer in the power of design, education and performance and her work aims to marry those worlds with a holistic approach.
Her passion for culture and performance arts brought her to work for Stufish for the past 2 years, where she continues to nurture her interest in collaboration with many professionals and designing together sense-stimulating and thought-provoking environments all around the world. Zarya has been involved in numerous projects from the very early creative phase all the way through to construction. Previously she has worked with MET Studio on many world-wide historic, science and cultural exhibitions and experiences.
