Assist. Prof. Dr. Matevž Juvančič

Born in Ljubljana, Slovenia, Matevž Juvančič is an architect, a teacher and a researcher at the Faculty of Architecture, University of Ljubljana. His research work was initially focused on architectural education of general public and public participation. In later years, he has become fascinated by anonymous, generic elements in urban environments as well as more distinct ones, studying their significance in space orientation, space use and spatial character. His main research focus has recently shifted towards spatial semantics, spatial character in connection with identity issues, and fundamental questions related to what makes places recognizable and identifiable.  At the Faculty of Architecture, he is teaching at bachelor, master and doctoral level. Large proportion of his daily activities consist of Erasmus and other international exchange programmes management. He has been practicing architecture since 2002 and is a licensed architect.


Born in Asola in 1985, Federico Marcolini studied architecture at Politecnico di Milano, IUAV in Venice and Technische Universität in Munich.

His research focuses on architecture and its role in the enhancement of decommissioned railways and their territories. Since 2016 he collaborates as teaching assistant in various design courses at Polo Territoriale di Mantova – Politecnico di Milano focused on the relationship between the ancient and the new in historical contexts such as Sabbioneta, Manova, Porto and Lisbon.
