He received his Bachelor degree from IUAV Istituto Universitario di Archittetura di Venezia, and his MS degree in Urban Strategies, with excellence, from the University of Applied Arts in Vienna, where he studied under the auspices of Wolf Prix. In 2010, Juricic was selected as a Ph.D researcher for the Getty Research Institute Seminars in Architecture and Design in Los Angeles. Currently, he is teaching at SCI-Arc and in the post-graduate program in Urban Strategies at the University of Applied Arts in Vienna.
Juricic is currently a Ph.D candidate in the Department of Architecture at UCLA. His thesis dissertation, “Unbound Architecture: Was Everything Architecture?,” aims to create a post-WWII to contemporary area genealogy of architecture that is engaged with questions about the relationship between art, architecture and capitalism, and more specifically, how architecture used “installation art” as a medium to engage with questions of environment and object hood.
In 2011, as CEO of MLAUS (Mediterranean Laboratory for Architecture and Urban Strategies), Juricic kickstarted the international symposium series on architecture, art, and science, dubbed PROTO/E/CO/LOGICS. The symposium aims to tease out speculative directions for architecture in relation to the contemporary “denaturalised material ecology.” Symposium participants included Sanford Kwinter, Sylvia Lavin, Graham Harman, Reza Negarestani, Keller Easterling, Eva Franch i Gilabert, Michael Meredith, Hernan Diaz-Alonso, Francois Roche, and Patrik Schumacher to name a few.
