Marko Milovanovic AADipl, BA(Hons), RIBA

In January 2021 I "founded" FREE SCHOOL OF: an educational platform that celebrates conversation over any other form of knowledge and explores areas of design, art, architecture, culture, education, curation...

In late 2018 I "founded" MYLOMARK PRODUCTION AND PUBLISHING: a multi-disciplinary practice which specialises in space, object and knowledge production and publishing. 

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 a columnist and journalist for Serbian national newspapers and magazines of record Politika, Danas, Vreme and NIN. I studied architecture in (and of) Oxford and London and written about and studied cities around the world including Tokyo, New York City, Nanjing, Medellin, Dubai, Istanbul, Paris, Belgrade and Rome. Following Diploma 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 cutting and pasting in 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. From January to October 2018, I curated and conducted a series of conversations at the Architectural Association, AA Dialogues (among others I interviewed Wolfgang Tillmans, Es Devlin, Yinka Shonibare), exploring how makers outside of the architectural field construct ideas, objects and images. Following my studies, I spent five years at Hopkins Architects, working on projects including 100 Liverpool Street commercial redevelopment in the City of London, Institute of Immunity and Transplantation in Hampstead and Expo Live Pavillion building for Dubai Expo 2020. In the past, I have worked on various other healthcare and educational projects in London and Oxford, engaging with historical buildings and sites as well as several private homes in London and in the English countryside. 

Alongside my work within Mylomark Production and Publishing and my dialogic practice within Free School Of, my current preoccupation is education. I teach at the Royal College of Art and I lead design studios at the Architectural Association School of Architecture and at Oxford Brookes University.
