Ewa has published five books and several scientific papers on a diverse range of subjects such as modernist architecture, heritage and contemporary housing in Poland. A book titled Determinants of Housing Architecture in Poland (2009) discusses economic, social and cultural factors that condition architectural development of housing. Another book, Consumers’ Housing Preferences in Poland. Models of Inhabitation (2013), is based on a nationwide survey that examined and analysed residential preferences and aspirations in Poland. The results show a correlation between preferences and aspirations and the level of wealth, place of living and household type.
