Marko Milovanovic AADipl, BA(Hons), RIBA

My recent work is a record and interpretation of the flickering of light and the ever-changing nature of the cities and landscapes and the urban qualities of nature. I impose and extract elements of reality to construct a new form of geometry. What gets built is a typology, an image, a recording of time, a structure, a landscape, a space – a form of architecture and a form of language.

I do not quite remember when is it that I started my relationship with pen and paper but at the more conscious age I have become interested in other mediums and indeed media. Camera, text, textile.

The process of making in time is essential to anything I set out to say and is the essence of anything I make. Constructing and crafting, layering and revealing is in itself the end product, perhaps more that the end product itself.

I have presented on radio and extensively written as columnist and journalist for Serbian national newspapers and magazines of record Politika, Danas and Vreme. I studied architecture in (and of) Oxford and London and studied and recorded cities around the world including Tokyo, New York City, Nanjing, Medellin, Dubai, Istanbul, Paris, Belgrade and Rome. I have documented architecture of Le Corbusier, Aldo van Eyck, Carlo Scarpa and Tadao Ando. Following my studies at the Architectural Association in 2014, I was a Boas Scholar at the British School in Rome where I undertook a research project “The History of Stitching” tracing urban evolution of Rome throughout antiquity. In 2015 I joined the board of directors of the Architectural Association where I also served as an honorary officer of the Council until 2017. From January to March 2018, I curated and conducted a series of conversations at the Architectural Association, AA Dialogues, exploring how makers outside of the architectural field construct ideas, objects and images. I am currently an architect on a large office and retail redevelopment in the City of London. In the past, I have worked on healthcare and educational projects in London and Oxford, engaging with historical buildings and sites as well as several private homes in London and the English countryside.
