Morana M. Stipisic is trained as an architect, urban designer and planner and has more than fifteen years of international experience in production, management and teaching. Based in New York City, she has been teaching a seminar titled ‘Infrastructure, Resilience, and Public Space’ at the Columbia University’s GSAPP since 2011. Her academic career started in Bangkok where she taught architecture studio at the Chulalongkorn University and collaborated with Hong Kong University’s Masters of Urban Design Studio.
While acting as a research advisor for the Earth Institute's Urban Design Lab, Stipisic established a partnership with United Nations’ regional offices UN-ESCAP and UN-ECLAC as well as UN-Habitat. An outcome of that collaboration was publication of the Guidelines for Developing Eco-efficient and Socially Inclusive Infrastructure, where Morana was one of the key authors contracted by ESCAP. Three years of collaboration with her teaching partner resulted with a new publication Innovations in Resilient Urban Water Infrastructure - Equitable Deployment of Resilient Systems published by the Columbia University GSAPP Books. This work was closely interconnected with the Preparatory Process for Habitat III - where Morana served as one of the Policy Unit experts that forged the Zero Draft of the New Urban Agenda.
