About us

The Mimo Wieku Foundation (KRS 0000668818, NIP1182140657) was founded in March 2017 as a response to the growing need to take action related to adapting the residential environment in Poland to the needs of the elderly. Poland is one of the fastest aging countries in the world, hence the need for such measures is very urgent.

Agnieszka Cieśla

Founder and President of The Mimo Wieku Foundation

I try to combine practical experience (know-how) with theoretical experience (know-why); as a result, the solutions created are tailored to the realities, and at the same time are characterized by innovation.

Agnieszka is an architect and urban planner, a specialist in issues related to aging and its consequences in space. She received her PhD in this subject in 2013 from the Bauhaus University in Weimar, Germany. She is the initiator and co-organizer of the first Model Senior Housing in Poland, which operated in Warsaw from 2016 to 2020.

Since 2016, Agnieszka has been an assistant professor at the Department of Spatial Management and Environmental Sciences, Faculty of Geodesy and Cartography, Warsaw University of Technology, where she carries out research and projects related to the topics of residential and senior living environments.
