Ana Filipovic


Architect Ana Filipovic shares an overview of their research on the relationship between Berlin’s new build housing schemes and the hyper-commodification of our universal right, to have a place to live.


Ana Filipovic is an architect, spatial designer, and independent researcher based in Berlin. Her work, which spans art and architecture, as well as theory and practice, uses various media to critically assess built environments and the forces that shape them. The recurring issue of interest in her work is our relationship to the notions of private, public, and common property amid the contemporary condition of the commodification of everything, especially in the domain of urban housing. She is a founding member of Soft Agency and part of research-based design practice If/Then. Her work has been included in various exhibitions, publications, and symposiums and she was recently awarded scholarships by the Akademie Schloss Solitude in Stuttgart and Akademie der Künste, Berlin.
