Nadya K. Nenadich holds a Bachelor of Architecture from Pratt Institute, and a Master of Science in Historic Preservation from Columbia University. She worked at several architecture firms in New York—Kohn Pedersen Fox, Ehrenkrantz Eckstut & Kuhn, and Einhorn Yaffee & Prescott—before moving to Barcelona to pursue a Ph.D. in Architecture at the Polytechnic University of Catalonia. Her dissertation focused on the relationship between memory and space in planned communities in the United States. In 2006 Nadya returned to Puerto Rico and worked as Associate Dean at the Polytechnic University of Puerto Rico where she also was a tenured professor before moving back to New York in 2013 to direct and teach at the Historic Preservation Program at Pratt Institute. Her current research focuses on the intersections between memory and space. She is interested in specifically looking at how, what, and why we remember what we do, and the important role place play in the cycles of remembering and forgetting.
