About Prof. Guy Trangoš

Guy Trangoš is an Associate Professor in the Graduate School of Architecture (GSA) and a professional architect. His research examines the evolving relationships between urbanisation, society, science, technology, and infrastructure.

He holds a Doctor of Design degree from the Harvard University Graduate School of Design, a Master of Science in City Design and Social Science from the London School of Economics and Political Science, and a Master of Architecture (Professional) from the University of the Witwatersrand.

Guy has been a Senior Lecturer in the Department of Architecture (UJ), Unit 22 lead at the GSA, a teaching fellow at Harvard GSD and a sessional lecturer at the University of the Witwatersrand. He has worked on major research projects at LSE Cities and the Gauteng City-Region Observatory.

Guy has undertaken grant-funded research on five continents and published widely for numerous platforms, including Perspecta, Scenario Journal, The Architectural Review, City Journal, Canadian Architect, and Architecture South Africa. Most recently, Guy has analysed the spatial dimensions of big science projects and the social, urban, and landscape changes they affect. His latest book, ‘The Spatialities of Radio Astronomy’ (Routledge, 2023), exemplifies the breadth of his work in this realm.

He has over fifteen years of experience practising architecture and has been instrumental in award-winning architectural, research, curatorial and graphic projects.
