Selena Savić

Researcher and trained architect.

Her research interests revolve around the fusion of computational processes with the built environment, exploring ways to communicate communication processes. After her PhD at École Polytechnique Fédérale de Lausanne (EPFL) and a postdoc at the Department for Architecture Theory and Philosophy of Technics ATTP at Vienna University of Technology, she joined the FHNW Academy of Art and Design in Basel, where she is currently Head of the Make/Sense PhD programme and lecturer at the Institute for Experimental Design and Media Cultures. She has edited two books (Ghosts of Transparency, 2019 and Unpleasant Design, 2013). In 2013 she co-founded Contour, a journal for interdisciplinary research in architecture, for which she recently edited a special issue on Politics and the City (2020). She writes about computational modelling, feminist hacking and posthuman networks in the context of design and architecture.
