Architect Şerban Ţigănaş is the founder of the multidisciplinary office Dico şiŢigănaş, which won many awards and carried out projects which distinguished themselves and gained visibility at international level. Unanimous praise was given to the Arena and the Polyvalent Hall in Cluj, and the “Ion Oblemenco” Stadium in Craiova. In 2017, the stadium ranked fourth in the world based on the jury’s vote while Cluj Arena was awarded at an international architecture competition in New York in 2013. The Arch of Triumph Stadium, nominated and awarded by the Romanian Union of Architects and the Romanian Order of Architects, is one of the most valuable recent buildings in Bucharest. An exceptionally refined stadium which blends in impeccably with the architectural context of one of the most select areas in the capital city. An entire corner of the stadium is transparent. The audience can admire Caşin Monastery from the stands, while the passers-by can enjoy the show’s magic on the field from the street. Fifteen years prior, he was part of the architects team who left its mark on the centre of Cluj as he was among those who transformed Union Square into a pedestrian square.

He is the dean of the Faculty of Architecture at the Polytechnic University in Timişoara, where he teaches architecture theory and design, and a communication and marketing course for architects.

He held different positions at the Romanian Order of Architects, whose president he was between 2010 and 2018, as well as a member of the Architects’ Council of Europe (ACE) and the International Union of Architects (UIA). He was part of the team responsible for the organization of the UIA Congress in 2020 in Rio de Janiero, the First World Capital of Architecture. In addition, he was Secretary General of the International Union of Architects (UIA).
