Curriculum vitae

Dr. Laura Trazic studied architecture at the ENSA Marseille with a semester abroad at the ETSA Sevilla. After her Master degree she worked for two years in various architectural offices and then joined the Doctoral Program Architecture and Sciences of the City at EPFL. In 2021, she completed her doctoral research on Eighteenth and Nineteenth centuries aesthetics, in which she traced the genealogy of a theory of composition by shadows influenced by painting theory, through both iconographic and semantic mediums ("De la décoration par les ombres: traduction de méthodes picturales dans l’architecture française des XVIIIème et XIXème siècles"). For this research, she was partially funded by the Swiss Government Excellence Scholarships for Foreign Students. In parallel, she took part in the teaching activities of the Arts of Sciences Laboratory (LAPIS) led by Prof. Nicola Braghieri. Since spring 2021, she is project manager at the chair of Prof. Tom Avermaete for the European research project "Communities of Tacit Knowledge: Architecture and its Ways of Knowing ».
