Architectural Graduate, M. Arch I Urb Plan
Biljana finished the Faculty of Architecture, University of Zagreb in 2012. In 2016 moved to New Zealand and very soon joined MC Architecture Studio.
The thing I learned at the university I value most is that we all leave ripples. That was one of the messages I got from one of my favourite professors at the university. His lectures were about cities, actually, saying that cities, like people, live of love. And that got me thinking about my profession. Why I wanted to be an architect, urban planner. Luckily for me after a long period of contemplation about my profession I have found I am at the right place and that I have chosen correctly. I love my profession. As architects, we have a possibility to build relationships, realise people’s dreams or at least give them a setting to try to conceive them.
It is essential to try to understand people... and try to provide them with what they need, want, desire but also try to teach them what they might not know. Today, as a practicing professional, I try to incorporate all of the above said into what I do every day. At times it does seem a challenge, but I guess that is what we are all here for.
