I am an architect, urbanist, planner, associate professor and program director in architecture at the Iceland Academy of the Arts in Reykjavik where I teach architecture, and social design. I graduated in architecture from Istituto Universitario di Architettura di Venezia IUAV in 2000 spending one year as exchange student at KTH in Stockholm. My following years have been a mix of studies and working. I received a second MA from Architectural Association in Housing and Urbanism in 2002, and a MSc in Regional and Urban Planning Studies from London School of Economics in 2011. I am currently a PhD candidate at the University of Iceland enrolled in the department of Cultural Studies.
Becoming Citizens: Architectural Education in the North is the title of my PhD research which investigates how the Nordic schools of architecture are addressing grand challenges. The main research questions are: What are the values that each school teach? And How architecture education translate values into tangible experience?
