Architect Lino Bianco has been away from the University of Malta on teaching and research commitments for the past weeks. He had just returned from Bulgaria where he was a guest lecturer at the National Palace of Culture to close Sofia Architecture Week 2012. This was the third consecutive public lecture which he was invited to deliver in the Bulgarian Capital this year, all centring about a phenomenological reading of this city in history. He flew to Sofia from the Far East where he gave a lecture at the Museum of Filipino Architecture. Prior to the Philippines, he gave a course of lectures in philosophical approaches to urbanism at the University of Architecture, Civil Engineering and Geodesy of Sofia.

In addition to his recent overseas lecturing profile, Perit Bianco successfully secured over the past months two architectural design awards. During InterArch2012, he received a special prize by the Ministry of Building of Ulyanovsk Region, Russia, for innovation in traditional architecture. His project, alterations and extension to a sub-standard house at Żabbar, was one of 162 projects submitted from 11 countries. Furthermore, last month he placed third in an international architectural design completion for the redevelopment of Via Roma, Agazzano, Italy.

Perit Bianco is a full-time member of the academic staff at the Department of Architecture and Urban Design of the University of Malta where he lectures and directs research in architectural history and theory. Fifteen years ago he set up Lino Bianco and Associates, an architectural and environmental planning consultancy firm. Perit Bianco is a professor at the International Academy of Architecture. He is the youngest architect to hold this prestigious post.
