Kacper Lastowiecki


Kacper was born in Chicago and grew to love architecture from a very young age. He began his architectural studies at the University of Illinois, Urbana-Champaign, where he was involved in the American Institute of Architecture Students, serving as president during his junior and senior years. He graduated from UIUC in 2016 with a Bachelor of Science in Architectural Studies and attended Princeton University for the next three years, where he received his Professional Master of Architecture. His thesis work, under the advisement of professors Elizabeth Diller and Mario Gandelsonas, focused on community-focused architecture in mid-sized American cities, which then sparked his interest in the growing architectural scene in Northwest Arkansas.

Following graduation, Kacper relocated to NWA and began his professional career at the University of Arkansas Community Design Center, where he was responsible for the design of projects investigating topics such as community agriculture, heavy timber, watershed management, and human-focused urbanism.

Kacper has since taken his accumulated knowledge and applied it to his own self-managed development project, Rabbit House, located in Springdale, Arkansas. He enjoys contributing to the stellar design community at modus studio and in Northwest Arkansas in general. In his free time, you can find him playing soccer or practicing classical guitar.
