Guido Cimadomo is a lecturer in the Department of Art and Architecture and Coordinator for International Mobility at the Higher Technical School of Architecture at the University of Malaga, Spain, where he has been since 2010. He is an architect and graduated at the Politecnico di Milano, Italy, and completed his PhD in the history and theory of architecture at the University of Seville, Spain.
He teaches architectural history and theory on the undergraduate program in architecture, and energetically innovative architecture on the postgraduate Master's course in environmental design and new technologies. He also teaches as an invited tutor at different international design workshops related to the transformation of the contemporary city, and, since 2014, as a guest critic for design studios at the University of Palermo, Italy. In 2017 he was a Visiting Fellow at the Centre for Architecture Theory, Criticism and History (ATCH) at the University of Queensland, Australia.
Guido is an expert member of ICOMOS’ scientific committee CIPA for the Documentation of Architectonic Heritage and of UNESCO’s Forum 'University and Heritage'. His practice of architecture develops design and building management for public projects with a specialization on cultural and sport facilities and on the documentation, rehabilitation and dissemination of cultural heritage in the south of Spain.
His research focuses on urban and territorial transformations, especially in borderlands, the possibilities that information technologies bring to encourage community participation for urban and heritage development, and on consolidating a community identity. His interests also include broader themes related to the history and theory of architecture and on new approaches to writing about architecture, which led to the design of the online course “Writing architecture: Pathlines and critera”, 2010-2017.
