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 focused, physical and repetitive process of making in time is somehow 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 (Vol.1. included Es Devlin, Yinka Shonibare, Ursula Mayer, Assemble, Charlie Koolhaas), 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.
