New London Architecture (NLA) is delighted to announce that Rosa Rogina has been appointed as director of the London Festival of Architecture (LFA).
Rosa Rogina has been programme director of the London Festival of Architecture since 2016. She was part of an international team representing Montenegro at the 2018 Venice Biennale and was curator-in-residence at Vienna Design Week 2020. She also teaches architecture at the University of East London.
Rosa holds a MA degree in Architecture from the Royal College of Art and an MA in Research Architecture from Goldsmiths, University of London. She has worked for some of the world’s leading architecture practices including MVRDV, Grimshaw and Farshid Moussavi Architecture. Her writing has been published widely and she is a regular speaker and moderator on contemporary architecture and design.
Rosa Rogina said:
“I am thrilled to become the new director of the London Festival of Architecture. I cannot wait to work with my festival colleagues and the New London Architecture team, as well as our wonderful network of supporters to shape the future of the festival. Ever since joining the festival team in 2016 I have been struck by the LFA’s ability to impact everyday experiences of the city: something that’s going to be needed more than ever as London emerges from the Covid-19 pandemic, and as we focus more keenly on the climate emergency. I’m proud to be part of a team that does so much to promote the value of London’s built environment, and I’m excited for the festival’s future.”
Peter Murray, curator-in-chief at New London Architecture and founder of the London Festival of Architecture said:
“I’m very pleased that Rosa has agreed to take on the role of director of LFA. She is well known to all those who have been involved with and supported the festival in recent years and brings a welcome continuity to the role which is enhanced by her work in practice, academic teaching and international curatorial projects.”
