About the Author

Mirjana Lozanovska is Associate Professor at Deakin University, Australia. Her research deploys multidisciplinary theories of space to examine mobility and exchange and its impact on architecture, diversity and culture, and the reinvention of the city. She has published widely on migration and architecture, and is editor of the anthology, Ethno-Architecture and the Politics of Migration (2016).


"Tracing the post war emigration of unprivileged migrants to affluent economies, Lozanovska's Migrant Housing expertly uncovers human networks and material conditions otherwise neglected in architectural studies, powerfully demonstrating the built environment's capacity for recording and representing the migrant condition. Her captivating metaphor of the `twin house', imagined, created and adapted in sending as well as recipient sites conjures a transcultural poetic across national borders that emerges as equally viable and intellectually stimulating as other situated representations of home or dwelling."

Anoma Pieris, University of Melbourne, Australia

"Two distant places - the village of Zavoj (Republic of Macedonia) and the suburbs of Melbourne (Australia) - are tied together through the will, aspiration and luck of migration. As ties between them thicken and thin over time, the homes and neighbourhoods in each place expand and contract. Migrant Housing builds a compelling account of this unlikely reciprocity, and weaves around it a rich and far-reaching set of reflections on migration and its formative role in shaping contemporary cities".

Stephen Cairns, editor of Drifting: Architecture and Migrancy (Routledge 2004), Singapore
