Ana Filipovic is an architect and researcher based in Berlin/Germany. She engages with architecture as both critical and cultural, as well as with design practice. She is interested in spatial transformations and their relationship to the notions of private, public and common property, especially in the sphere of collective housing and the city periphery. Ana Filipovic holds a diploma degree in architecture and urban planning from University of Belgrade (2007) and a MA in Architecture and Critical & Spatial Practice from Städelschule in Frankfurt am Main/Germany (2012). She was scholar of German Academic Exchange Service (DAAD) from 2010 to 2012.

In 2014, she co-founded a collaborative practice If-Then, operating at the intersection of spatial design, research and technology.
Her work has been published in Zent Magazine, PIN-UP, Baumeister, A10.

She has participated in workshops such as Wohnungsfrage-Akademie at Haus der Kulturen der Welt (HKW), Berlin and has been awarded prizes in design competitions addressing a wide range of spatial contexts, most notably Plovdiv Central Square with If-Then (competition finalist) and Estrel Tower with Barkow Leibinger (first prize winner).
