    Miodrag Mitrasinovic

    Profile

    Miodrag Mitrašinović is an architect, urbanist, author, and Professor of Urbanism and Architecture at Parsons School of Design, The New School university in New York City. He is the editor of Architecture and the Public World: Kenneth Frampton (Bloomsbury, 2022, forthcoming), co-editor of Public Space Reader (with Vikas Mehta, Routledge, 2021) and Emerging Public Realm of the Greater Bay Area: Approaches to Public Space in a Chinese Megaregion (with Timothy Jachna, Routledge, 2021), the editor of Concurrent Urbanities: Designing Infrastructures of Inclusion (Routledge 2015), co-editor of Travel, Space, Architecture (with Jilly Traganou, Routledge 2009), and author of Total Landscape, Theme Parks, Public Space (Ashgate/Routledge 2006). Miodrag’s scholarly work focuses on two parallel and complementary lines of inquiry. First, on the role design plays as an agent of social and political change, and as catalyst for critical urban transformations; his research argues for the centrality of designing in the conceptualization, production, and representation of democratic and participatory urban space. Secondly, Miodrag’s work also focuses on the generative capacity and infrastructural dimensions of public space specifically at the intersections of public policy, urban and public design, and processes of privatization of public resources. His first two books received grants from the Graham Foundation for Advanced Studies in the Fine Arts in 2004 and 2006 respectively. Mitrašinović has served in a variety of scholarly, professional and editorial roles. His professional and scholarly work has been published internationally.

    Mitrašinović holds Ph.D. in Architecture from the University of Florida at Gainesville (1998), U.S.A.; MArch from The Berlage Institute, the Netherlands (1994); and Dipl. Ing. Arch. Diploma from the University of Belgrade, Serbia (1992). Before joining The New School in 2005, he held teaching and research appointments at the University of Texas at Austin (1998-2005, with tenure), at the University of Florida at Gainesville (1995-96 and 1997-98), and at Kyoto University in Japan (1996-97). In 2012, he completed the academic leadership program at Harvard University, the Institute for Management and Leadership in Education (MLE).

    Mitrašinović regularly lectures on his scholarly work as well as on his work as design educator and academic leader; he also often takes part in academic and professional panels, conferences and studio reviews.
