Speaker’s biography 

Igea Troiani (PhD, BArch (Hons), BAppSc) is a trained architect, academic and filmmaker. She has practiced architecture in Melbourne and Brisbane in Australia, in Münster in Germany and is founding member, with Andrew Dawson, of the trans-disciplinary Oxford based practice, Original Field of Architecture (2007+). Her research in architectural humanities explores new modes of architectural scholarship beyond the solely textual. Since 2004 she has written critical theory as short film and documentary film under her production company Caryatid Films. She has given keynote addresses on visual methods of research in architecture and screened her films in Brisbane, London, Sheffield, Bristol and Copenhagen. She is currently editing two books, Visual Research Methods in Architecture and Architecture Filmmaking (Intellect, late 2017). She is founder and editor-in-chief of Architecture and Culture, a journal that opens up a new territory of audio-/visual publication for architectural scholars that values multi-sensorial readings of architectural knowledge. Her current studio-based research on unfinished buildings uses photography and filmmaking as visual research methods to critique the relationship between architectural labour, development and neoliberalism.

We very much look forward to seeing many of you at this event!
