Meet our new Leading Architects.
Recently the Barcelona Architecture Walks team have had some additions as new Leading Architects.
Today we want to talk about them, sharing with you some more personal details about our guides!
All our Leading Architects have interesting things to tell us… so we consider important to share with you!
Let’s continue with Jelena!
Architect degree from the Belgrade University (1998) and PhD from the Polytechnic university of Barcelona (2006)
Practicing architect, researcher, writer and professor of Urban History at BAC (Barcelona architecture Center). Author of different books and articles on 20th century architecture. Co-curator of the Catalan pavilion at the 15th Venice Bienale of Architecture, 2016.
Architecture is always the expression of an epoch: of its society, politics and ideologies, culture, economy and technological development. When a client formulates a project commission, the package contains a set of dreams, a desired image that is to be projected through the built work defining its artistic attractiveness, high technology, ecological awareness, material austerity or exuberance. I like to transmit all this complexity of architecture and its general context both to my students and to my fellow-walkers.
