Kornelia Dimitrova (1990) is an architect, lecturer and researcher, based in Eindhoven (NL), since 2015 teaching at the Architectural History and Theory department at Bergische University Wuppertal with Christoph Grafe. Currently, she also teaches Architectural Theory, part-time at Fontys University of Applied Sciences in Tilburg. Apart from her academic commitments, she is a research curator of Stichting We Are, a creative agency that brings design thinking into the practices of lawyers and human rights defenders. She graduate in Architecture at TU Eindhoven, where her project Envisioning the Anthropocene, was nominated for Archiprix NL (2016) and Archiprix International (2017).
Her work treats places as systems, where impactful and innovative interventions can be generated through interdisciplinary approach. Her research interests include the Anthropocene and its capacity to transform architectural practice and theory. In her work, context extends in time and space, and a building is seen as both an object in the wider environment, as well as a micro-environment in its own right. The focus of her work is on how meaning of architectural form in relates to ecology and resilience.
