Beyond the Limits of the City...
Milica Topalovic
Architecture of Territory—the ETH Zurich Chair of Architecture and Territorial Planning—dedicates its work to forms and processes of territorial urbanisation, arguing for the necessity of architect engagement at territorial scales. Since 2011 Milica Topalovic has been attached to the ETH Future Cities Laboratory in Singapore, studying the region’s hinterlands. With their return to Zurich, Topalovic and her team initiate a new phase of research on European countrysides.

This publication is an edited transcript of Architecture of Territory, the inaugural lecture delivered by Milica Topalovic on November 30, 2015 at the ETH Zurich.
