Gabrielė Grigorjevaitė is a multi-disciplinary practitioner and researcher. Working at the intersection of culture, architecture and environmental politics, Gabrielė explores the material histories of industrialisation, colonisation and financialisation of nature and the built environment.

Gabrielė’s current research centres on forest ecosystems in the Baltic and Northern European regions. Exploring the forest as a constellation of concepts, images and spaces, her research investigates the effects of intensifying extractive forestry practices on ecosystems and different forms of diversity. 

Over the last year, she has been collaborating with Lithuania’s Ancient Woods Foundation – a consortium of biologists, botanists, environmental scientists, as well as artists and filmmakers – aiming to protect threatened old-growth forests and the life forms they contain, and to establish enduring public forests in Lithuania as blueprints of thriving ecosystems.

Gabrielė has worked at the University of the Arts London, including the Research Centre for Transnational Art, Identity and Nation, Centre for Circular Design and the Social Design Institute, producing and curating projects and public programmes since 2015.

Her work has been presented at the Venice Architecture Biennale, Dulwich Picture Gallery, University of the Arts London, Arts Catalyst and Sharjah Architecture Triennial among other forums.

She holds an MA in Environmental Architecture from the Royal College of Art London.
