Ph.D.  Urban and Regional Research and Planning, Technical University Vienna

MSc.BSc. Architecture and Urban Planning,  University of Zagreb


Antonia Bogadi holds a Ph.D. from TU Vienna Department of Urban and Regional Research and Planning, and a Masters degree in Architecture and Urban Planning. Her dissertation and first book looked at social ecological resilience framework and social network analysis use in public policy.  She has done research on the processes of planning and decision making in topics of sustainable land use, environmental policy, urban green infrastructure, knowledge management, resilience of critical infrastructures, stakeholder’s engagement and collaborative planning. Her recent interests have focused on participatory policies and actions at the urban and regional levels. She maintains a enduring interest in how to improve the use of local and “expert” knowledge in planning and public policy. She has been teaching urban and regional planning theory for many years, developing syllabuses ideas through her research in social ecological resilience. 

She is a torchbearer for new way of thinking in planning thought and planning practice, which recognises the dynamic relationships and transformations that complex systems of our regions and cities undergo in today’s massive global challenges, and translates them into operational assessment methodologies, guidelines, and procedures for strategically navigating change. 

Her most recent research project RESIST, Resilience of Critical Infrastructure Systems, deals with the transformation of traditional institutions and decision making practices towards new concepts of governance, which are able to strive in change by bridging and including diversity of perspectives and needs.


Dr. Bogadi’s teaching includes courses in contemporary theory of planning, land use and environmental policy, introduction to planning practice, urban planning studios, and sustainable and resilient planning in agglomerations. Her most recent course is on using frameworks of resilience, vulnerability and adaptive capacities in planning.


From 2013 through 2015, Dr. Bogadi was the director of the Association of Architects and Urban Planners, a non governmental city level organisation focused on a wide range of urban sustainability topics through externally funded projects. In her ability as director she conceived and managed a variety of community development activities, and community-based education projects in partnership with local government, research institutes, foundations, grassroots, individuals, and NGO’s.


She is author or coauthor of professional articles, academic textbook, and one major monography. She has given talks on her research in cities around the world.
