Bruno Juričić is an architect, curator and entrepreneur. He received his Bachelor degree from IUAV Istituto Universitario di Architettura di Venezia, and his MSc degree in Urban Strategies, with excellence, from the University of Applied Arts in Vienna, where he studied under the auspices of Zaha Hadid, Greg Lynn and Wolf Prix. In 2010, Juricic was selected as a Ph.D. researcher for the Getty Research Institute Seminars in Architecture and Design in Los Angeles. Juricic is currently a Ph.D. candidate in the Department of Architecture at UCLA under the guidance of Sylvia Lavin.
In 2011, as founder of MLAUS (Mediterranean Laboratory for Architecture and Urban Strategies), Juricic kickstarted the international symposium series on architecture, art, and science dubbed “PROTO/ E/CO/LOGICS.” The symposium aims to tease speculative directions for architecture in relation to the contemporary ‘denaturalized material ecology.’ Symposium participants included, among others, Sanford Kwinter, Sylvia Lavin, Graham Harman, Reza Negarestani, Keller Easterling, Eva Franch i Gilabert, Michael Meredith, Hernan Diaz Alonso, Benjamin Bratton, François Roche, and Patrik Schumacher.
In 2014 Bruno founded Atelier Bruno Juričić. The studio is a small, agile practice capable of working at a wide range of scales. The office has completed buildings in Croatia and currently it is expanding its operations in China. The practice is founded on a commitment to the reality of the built work, and the transformative potential of architecture and urban strategies. By projecting reason and emotion in every creative endeavour, cultural values are highly esteemed by our continuous engineered effort into both physical and non physical forms. Currently, Atelier Bruno Juričić is constructing a 30,000 m2 Hotel in Hai Ning City near Shanghai, China. The company has also build the first IT Campus in Croatia.
Bruno Juričić has taught in the post-graduate program in Urban Strategies at the University of Applied Arts in Vienna, at UCLA Department of Architecture & Urban Design, at the Mitchell Lab at Texas A&M University and at SCI-Arc in Los Angeles.
