Igor Marjanović studies the history of architectural pedagogy and practice, examining the role of drawings, exhibitions, and publications in the emergence of international architectural culture. His research has been published in anthologies, peer-reviewed journals, and magazines worldwide including AA Files, AD, AR / Architecture Research, arq, Architecture and Culture, Journal of Architectural Education, and OASE. Marjanović's collaborative approach to scholarship has led to critically acclaimed books such as Marina City: Bertrand Goldberg’s Urban Vision. His other publications build on these dialogues between art, architecture, and culture in a globalized world, including Tomás Saraceno: Cloud Specific and On the Very Edge: Modernism and Modernity in the Art and Architecture of Interwar Serbia (1918–1941) 

Marjanović’s most recent book, The Evolving Project: The Journal of Architectural Education and the Expansion of Scholarship, is a coedited volume that tells the story of postwar architectural pedagogy as an intellectual platform that engaged the larger social, cultural, and political issues of its time. His current research project examines the role of architectural education in East Central Europe during the Cold War (1945–90), illuminating the ways in which architects created new formal and political imaginaries in a time of global political division and crisis.

He has practiced architecture in Belgrade, Serbia, Fortaleza, Brazil, and Chicago. His practice with Katerina Rüedi Ray, ReadyMade Studio, engaged questions of immigration and globalization through community partnerships and installations such as City of Arrivals at the Art Institute of Chicago.
