BCSLA Intern MLA MFA
Jergus Oprsal brings a unique perspective to PWL, having completed an MFA in set and lighting design prior to his MLA at the University of Toronto. A native of Bratislava, Slovakia, Jergus is well versed in cultural landscapes, and it is this experience in part that inspired his study in this field.
It is immaterial phenomena that have maintained a sense of intrigue for Jergus. His scope of fascination with ‘the unseen’ includes the ability of landscape design elements to trigger the human sensory system, and subterranean infrastructure that, despite being out of sight, has important connections to and implications on the world above.
Away from the office, Jergus often finds himself visiting strange, exotic playgrounds with this two children, or ski touring through the Coastal Mountains in the winter months.
