Marija Masha Pavlović, editor
Graduated from the Faculty of Architecture in Belgrade. At the Faculty of Political Sciences she enrolled into master, and then PhD studies in Culture and Media, where she connected her interest in understanding social and political ideas and movements with architecture and urban development. On the other hand, her pragmatic approach and the reality of our architectural environment lead her on a path through design, from real-estate entrepreneurship, to the cruel numbers of foreign investors. Going through the social reality of Belgrade and Serbia, she tried herself out in media by working in public relations for the biggest company in the country, but also learned about the planning and managment of energy sistems. Member of the Serbian Chamber of Engineer.
Masha doesn’t consider architecture without sound and music to be architecture.
