Eva Branscome is a PhD candidate in Architectural History and Theory at the Bartlett School of Architecture, University College London. She is investigating architectural post-modernism and how the post-war art scene in Vienna can inform this debate. Prior to this she worked has as an expert on modern architecture for the pressure group The Twentieth Century Society, lobbying for the retention of the best buildings of that era. Approximately 50 buildings are now under historic protection as a result of her reports and applications. Most recently she has collaborated on the new edition of The Post-Modern Reader (Wiley, 2011) with Charles Jencks together with Lea-Catherine Szacka. As a photographer of the urban environment she has also documented a wide range of street art, including graffiti, in London and other cities such as Barcelona and built up a significant collection of this renegade art form as it appears in vacant and underused spaces, before it disappears again. She is now teaching at the History of Art Department at University College London.
