Ines Weizman is the founding director of the Centre for Documentary Architecture (CDA), an interdisciplinary research collective comprised of architectural historians, filmmakers and digital technologists. Since 2022 she is also Professor of Architectural Theory and Design at the Academy of Fine Arts, Institute for Art and Architecture in Vienna.

Weizman was trained as an architect at the Bauhaus University Weimar and the Ecole d’Architecture de Belleville in Paris, Cambridge University, and the Architectural Association where she completed her PhD thesis in History and Theory. She taught at the Architectural Association, Goldsmiths College London, the Berlage Institute of Architecture in Rotterdam and London Metropolitan University. Before joining the RCA Weizman was professor of architectural theory at the Bauhaus-Universität Weimar and director of the Bauhaus Institute for the History and Theory of Architecture and Planning. In 2016 and 2019 she directed the International Bauhaus-Colloquium and a series of conferences and exhibitions as part of the Bauhaus Jubilee in 2019.

Among her most recent publications are Dust&Data. Traces of the Bauhaus across 100 Years (2019), Documentary Architecture/ Dissidence through Architecture (2020) and 100+: Neue Perspektiven auf die Bauhaus-Rezeption (2021). Weizman’s ‘documentary methods’ developed, theorised, and presented in writings, film projects, lectures and exhibitions emerged in the context of her research on the history of international modernism and Bauhaus architecture history as well as in international research and design projects that involved experimental preservation projects and heritage theory. Her current work together with the research collective of the CDA is dealing with the history of modern architecture and design, particularly with issues of migration and colonial modernism. With the CDA she curated the exhibition The Matter of Data. Tracing the Materiality of “Bauhaus-Modernism”, which was shown in Weimar, Tel Aviv and Berlin.
