Nadia Casabella holds master’s degrees of science and engineering in architecture (1997) from the UPC Barcelona and in spatial and regional planning (2005) from the London School of Economics.
She is a founding partner of 1010 architecture urbanism Ltd., assistant professor at ULB Faculty of Architecture La Cambre-Horta, and research fellow at the Laboratory of Urbanism, Infrastructures and Ecology - LoUIsE. Her interest in infrastructural and ecological linkages and their socio-technical embeddedness has resulted in spatial planning schemes straddling research and policy like “The shared valley” (T.OP NOORDRAND, 2015), “The Coastal Line” (OSTEND GSRP, 2017), "What do you need?" (Atelier Rotterdam, IABR 2018), or "Anders Mobiel" (Atelier OVK, IABR 2010). She has actively partaken in many international research by design collaborations initiated by LoUIsE like the masterclasses RE:WORK (2013), END OF LINE (2014), and UP-CYLE (2015), the Atelier Brussels Productive Metropolis (with FABRIC., IABR 2016), the lectures' series “Designing with Flows” (ULB, 2015), or the Erasmus+ strategic partnership “Metropolitan e-studio” (2015-17). She currently coordinates the design studio "Urban Assemblages".
