Profile

Cesar Wagner is an architect and urban designer with professional experience in Brazil, Argentina, the Netherlands, the United Kingdom, and New Zealand. He completed his BArch studies in Argentine and Brazil (1993), a Master’s degree in Housing and Urbanism from the Architectural Association School of Architecture, London (2003) - British Council Chevening Scholarship recipient -, and a PhD in Urban and Regional Planning from the Federal University of Rio Grande do Sul, Brazil (2019).

Cesar has been a Lecturer and Senior Lecturer in the School of Architecture, UNITEC, New Zealand, since 2004, and former Director of their MArch by Project programme (2010-2012). He has taught in Brazil, and China, and lectured at several universities in Latin America, Europe, and New Zealand.

His research focuses on the study of public spaces (morphology and sensorial experience), housing intensification (design and policies), issues of sustainability in urban development projects (policies and plans), and the urbanisation of Latin American cities (history and planning).

Cesar Wagner has written several courses in the fields of housing intensification and urban design, ensuring close relationships and collaborations with community groups, local development agencies (Auckland Council; Eke Panuku; Kāinga Ora), and professionals in the field of architecture and urban planning.

Cesar's expertise as an educator and researcher has led to regular invitations as a guest critic and examiner of master’s and doctoral theses for several New Zealand institutions: the Architectural Studies Programme at Ara Institute of Canterbury; the Department of Architecture and Planning at the University of Auckland; and the Wellington School of Architecture at Victoria University of Wellington.

Senior Member of the Advisory Board on Public Space for the City Space Architecture (CSA) Global Community, Italy.
