Chair of Architecture and Territorial Planning
Milica Topalovic is Associate Professor of Architecture and Territorial Planning at the Department of Architecture, ETH Zurich. Her work is concerned with territories beyond-the-city and transformation processes they are exposed to, through the movement of capital, social restructuring, and environmental change. With rresearchers and students at the Architecture of Territory she undertook a range of territorial studies and design projects around the world, in remote regions, resource hinterlands, and countrysides, in an effort to decenter and ecologize architect’s approaches to the city, the urban, and urbanization.
In their recent research work and studios, Architecture of Territory have been looking at regions marked by unsustainable agriculture and energy production practices, in order to envision transitions toward regenerative landscapes and territories organized around the principles of agroecology and energy commons.
