I am pleased to announce that, after many months of work, my research project has been awarded the New York Research Grant from the Arquia Foundation and the San Fernando Academy of Fine Arts !! The spring semester of 2020 I will be doing field work to outline the project on the community gardens of Loisaida! More news soon!
For those who feel like it … Here inside, among many wonders of other doctors and researchers, my second academic article appears! The article «Stands, domes and casitas. Architects as actuators of the common space in La Plaza Cultural, New York» is published in issue # 18 ARCHITECTURES AL MARGEN of the magazine Progreso, project, architecture #PpA, directed by Amadeo Ramos Carranza. #orgullito de #friki!
This is the catalog of the ECOVISIONARIOS exhibition, curated by Pedro Gadanho, Mariana Pestana and the Matadero Madrid team. Collaborating in the assembly of the #ecovisionarios expo has been the most !! Thanks to the great team of @ elii_architecture and @mataderomadrid for inviting me to contribute with my grain of sand in the experience of assembling the incredible work of @pinaryoldaas !! An adventure of watts, wood and mirrors ... in which the body feels the heat in its own skin. Thanks to Elii Arquitectura for inviting me to collaborate with such incredible professionals.
The research project of the #institutomutante of environmental narratives and the #jardincyborg of @elii_architecture and @mataderomadrid hosted from June to October 2019 the works of resident artists and special guest works such as those of Rachel Amstrong whose execution I personally supervised. Thanks to @elii_architecture I was able to coordinate the construction of the Trace Hall of #RachelAmstrong and Rolph Huges together with @pierangeloscravaglieri and could not be more cool. The garden, that "hybrid place and evocative of relationships linked to desire and care" is deployed in the ship 16 of Matadero through the pieces of the artists uh513 (@imperdiblewoman and Alberto valverde) @otelhan, @we_are_takk, double happiness (@ jo.hwang and @feliz_nerea), @ robertina.sebjanic and @fito_conesa and the great team of Rachel Amstrong and Rolf Hughes.
In February 2019, I was invited to give a lecture on my doctoral research within the framework of the Global Urban Humanities group, an interesting inter-initiative of the University of Berkeley, California. Many thanks to Susan Moffat for the invitation and to my fantastic advisor at Berkeley Greg Castillo for his invaluable help during the work.

During the fall semester of 2018, I have been working and researching as a visiting scholar at University of California Berkeley, Center of Environmental Design, at the Architecture Department and happily granted by Polytechnic University of Madrid. The research project #QueerSpatialities in San Francisco has highly progressed thanks to this stay. I have met amazing researchers and professors and conducted essential interviews for the work. We will be featuring more information of the research very soon .. so stay tuned !
