Research profile

Jana Culek is an architect andurban planner based in the Netherlands. She is currently a PhD researcher with the Chair of Methods of Analysis and Imagination at the TU Delft Faculty of Architecture and the Built Environment, studying utopia as a critical and speculative method in architecture and literature. She graduated as an architect and urban planner from the Faculty of Architecture in Zagreb (2013), followed by a postgraduate master program at the Berlage Center for Advanced Studies in Architecture and Urban Design (2016). Her Berlage thesis project “A Flat Tale”, in which she investigated Dutch architecture and visual culture through various forms of correlations between drawings and text was subsequently published, presented and exhibited on various platforms including the Drawing Futures (UCL Press, 2016) book and conference and the Archifutures Vol.3 – The Site (DPR Barcelona, 2017) publication.

Aside from her academic work, Jana Culek is also a practicing architect. After working for several years at KAAN Architects, she started her own Delft based office Studio Fabula, through which she has developed a number of acknowledged and award-winning projects. She employs her research and interest in architectural narratives, representation and the relationship of text and drawings as a catalyst for her design work.
