ÚRBANISTAN is an architecture practice engaging at the intersection of architecture, art, and urban culture. Working on diverse projects that range from preservation, planning, strategic, and urban design to publishing, curating, and filmmaking.

ANNA MARÍA BOGADÓTTIR architect and author is the founder and owner of Úrbanistan. She engages with the cultural and social aspects of the built environment, with her work finding cross-disciplinary purchase across architecture, literature and visual art. Her auto-fictive debut, Interment (Angústúra, 2022) made her mark on the literary scene with a Nordic Council Literary Prize nomination. The book takes readers on a journey offering insights into how our surroundings shape us as humans. Prior to Interment, Anna has edited and published books on architecture and urbanism, some under the banner of ÚRBANISTAN. 

Anna is an associate professor in architecture at the Iceland University of the Arts. She holds an M. Arch. from Columbia University, an M.A. in cultural studies from the University of Southern Denmark, and an M.Sc. in design, media, and communication from Copenhagen IT University.
