Agata Mancini, OAA
An advocate for sustainability in all aspects, Agata Mancini is an eternal optimist, vegetarian, architect, mother, wife, foodie, photographer, and a minimalist-wannabe.
Originally from Krakow, Poland, she spent most of her childhood in the Niagara Region, before studying Architecture at the University of Waterloo. Until 8 years ago, quite randomly, Agata found her way to Hamilton due to an available position at a local architecture firm, and though she had spent very little time in Hamilton before relocating, she realized quite quickly that she felt a deep connection to the city and wanted to be a part of its future.
In 2016, after seeing a growing interest in Hamilton and the surrounding area for thoughtful, contemporary design on a smaller scale, Agata started Assembled Light Inc., to focus mostly on detail-oriented, modern, residential design. She remains an active member in the Hamilton-Burlington Society of Architects and the Young Architects of Hamilton; two groups that advocate for architecture in the area, and whose members have organized many initiatives to spark a conversation about architecture among the general public, and to promote its importance as a cultural movement.
Agata aims to contribute to healthy city-building, designing environments that have a positive effect on their users, and to help people see the importance of design in our daily lives: from the utensils we hold in our hands, to the buildings that surround us.
