Natália is a Slovak-British, Paris-based architect and researcher, graduated from the University of Cambridge (MPhil Architecture & Urban Design) and the École des Hautes Études en Sciences Sociales (Master Territoires, Espaces et Sociétés). Her PhD thesis associates an interest for contemporary architectural theory with ethnographic methods and is broadly articulated around the use of stone as building material today.

In practice, she has most recently worked for Barrault Pressacco in Paris — for whom she notably led the production of the exhibition Pierre: Réveler la Ressource, Explorer le Matériau held at the Pavillon de l’Arsenal— and Caruso St John Architects in London. Prior collaborations have included: Boidot Robin (FR), Laura Dewe Matthews Architecture (GB), Bogdan & Van Broeck Architects (BE), Docomomo International (ES) and the Atelier Parisien d’Urbanisme (FR).

Alongside her doctoral research, Natália has supervised student design and research projects at ENSA Paris Malaquais, ENSA Paris Belleville and EAVT Paris Est, given talks at various European architecture schools and published in a number of peer-reviewed journals. She is currently pursuing building projects that engage questions of memory and resource.
