Profile

Renata Jadresin Milic is an architect and architectural historian. She holds undergraduate and postgraduate architectural degrees, an MSc and a PhD from the Faculty of Architecture, University of Belgrade; and a fellowship from the Institute of Classical Architecture in New York. After eighteen years of teaching experience at the Faculty of Architecture in Belgrade, she moved to New Zealand in 2015.

At the School of Architecture at Unitec, Renata teaches Architectural History - Critical Studies, Architectural Theory, Research Methods, Design Studio, electives, and is a Principal Supervisor of MARCP Research Projects

As an Associate Professor in the School of Architecture, BAS Discipline leader and Historical, Conservation & Heritage Research Stream leader, she explores the theory and practice of heritage conservation and adapting historic places with Unitec students, as well as incorporating new design into heritage environments, both internationally and in Aotearoa, New Zealand. This research addresses conservation, future use and development of historic and modern buildings. Renata has led research projects that have involved community groups, industry partners and Unitec staff and students, utilising the most advanced digital heritage methodologies. She works collaboratively across disciplines, with architects and professionals from parallel and diverging fields, simultaneously interweaving history, theory and digital technologies with insights into cultural studies, sociology, environmentalism, and place identity.
