About me

Christina Pech is an architectural historian lecturing at the School of Architecture. Since the 2011 PhD-thesis Architecture and Resistance. Alternative Approaches in Swedish Architecture 1970-1980, her research interests have revolved around architectural discourse and the historiography of modern architecture, specifically exhibitions, museums, and collections. 2015-2018 she pursued research at ArkDes, the Swedish Centre for Architecture and Design, funded by The Swedish Arts Council. In 2017-2018 she was a research fellow at the Brussels Centre for Urban Studies, Vrije Universiteit Brussel. An ongoing research project, which is part of the Vinnova-funded "The Duved Model for Local Communities," researches the role of cultural heritage in present-day urban planning models. Since fall 2020, she is an editor of the digital platform SITE Zones.

Recently published work includes an anthology presenting results from an architectural history conference organized by Christina Pech at ArkDes, ArkDes Research Symposium on Architectural History 2018 (see link for full text). Forthcoming articles include "Collecting Slowly but Surely" in The Routledge Companion to Architectural Drawings and Models: From Translating to Archiving, Collecting and Exhibiting edited by Federica Goffi, and "Bauhaus in the Archive" in TAHITI Journal of Art History special issue edited by Leena Svinhufvud.

Christina Pech currently teaches architectural history and theory at the bachelor level of the architecture program and is responsible for the Architecture Research Seminar at the doctoral level.
