Boris Micka is the founder of Boris Micka Associates, a leading architecture and design firm with specialisations in museums, exhibitions and expo projects.
Micka studied at Prague University of Arts, Architecture and Design, under Professor Josef Svoboda, and went on to develop extensive skills as an exhibition scenographer during his 35-year-long career. This includes over 20 years at GPD in Seville where, as creative director, he worked on several award-winning projects.
In 2008, Micka went on to found his own architecture and design firm, Boris Micka Associates (BMA), a team of talented people from across the fields of architecture, history, multimedia, scenography design & production. The studio collaborates on projects around the world including in Europe, the Middle East, the USA and China.
“I have been designing scenographies, museums, exhibitions, and crazy stuff for my entire professional career. It is how I think, this is what I do, it is how I communicate with the world for the last 35 years,” says Micka.
BMA is currently working on several projects, including Saudi Arabia’s pavilion at Expo 2020 Dubai, the Archaeological Museum of Istanbul and the American Museum of Natural History in New York. The Saudi Arabia Pavilion at Expo 2020 fits into the opportunity strand, with a theme of ‘The Sky is the Limit’. It covers 13,000 square kilometres, with a design that conjures the image of a large window that opens up from the ground and soars towards the sky.
In 2022, the American Museum of Natural History will unveil a new addition: the Richard Gilder Center for Science, Education, and Innovation. BMA, in association with Tamschick Media+Space, is designing the interior architecture for the expansion, as well as content for Invisible Worlds, a new multimedia immersive interactive exhibit.
Other notable projects that Micka has worked on include the Museum of the Romanesque and Territory in Aguilar de Campoo, Spain, the Atturaif Living Museum in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia and the House of European History in Brussels, Belgium.
