Marta Caldeira's picture
Director of Research

Marta Caldeira is an architect and historian. Her academic research investigates modern discourses of architecture and the city, with a particular focus on historical contexts of political transition. Her approach to the history of urban form explores the intersection of architecture and urbanism with politics and socio-economics in the areas of urban planning, housing, preservation, and urban pedagogy. Before teaching at Yale, Caldeira worked as an architect in Lisbon and in New York, and taught at Columbia University. She frequently participates in international conferences on architectural history, urban history, and planning history in the United States, Europe, and Latin America. Her writings on architecture and the city have appeared in several international journals as well as recent anthologies on modern and contemporary architecture, including “The Education of an ‘Architect-Urbanist’: Manuel Solà-Morales and Urban Pedagogy at the ETSAB” (FA Magazine, 2016) and “The Building is the City is the Building” (The Building, 2016). Caldeira received a professional degree in Architecture from Faculdade de Arquitetura at Universidade Técnica de Lisboa, Portugal, an M.S.AAD and a Ph.D. in architectural history and theory from Columbia University. She is currently Director of Research at the Yale Urban Design Workshop and Critic in Architecture at the Yale School of Architecture where she teaches history and theory as well as design courses.
