So thrilled to announce that, one more year, one of our projects, this time the great #Hulu House, has been nominated for the 2021 ArchDaily’s Building of the Year Awards, thank you so much for always betting on us!
After many years I am returning to my home university and Architecture school to talk about my professional and academic experience and trajectory. I will tell the new generations how exciting, a road of ups and downs but worthy, is to work as an independent architect. Thank you very much to the conference team of the School of Architecture of the University of Alcalá de Henares for having me in this great cycle of talks. It is an honor to return to where everything started!
New Generations is a platform where you can get to know the vanguardist architecture of the 21st century. After a lot of effort #Huellas is released on its platform to talk about the challenges and possibilities of 19th century housing! Thank you very much for the opportunity!
This November the UrbanBat Festival, The City Inside the House, will take place! We have had the opportunity to contribute our grain of sand thanks to the research of the community gardens of Loisaida, in New York and their identity as resilient spaces in the face of the urban impositions/opportunities derived from the COVID19. We are very grateful to participate in these open debates that deal with open urban debates.
If there is a blog worth following to keep up to date with urban issues of participation and awareness, it is the Paisaje Transversal blog. So we can hardly believe that we have been able to contribute to it with the article «Resiliencia milenial en los jardines de Loisaida». It’s a great opportunity to claim the role of community gardens and their collective tools of self-production through platforms like this one!
One of our latest projects, #Huellas, a small bourgeois interior house transformed to be lived under today´s living standards, is becoming well known in some media like Archello. Thanks to the whole team for making possible the diffusion of our work!
We have started a collaboration with IMNA (Instituto Mutante de Narrativas Ambientales) in Matadero Madrid! We are happy to be able to participate in a project like this. Thank you very much for believing in us!
Last June I was invited to prepare the workshop Ciudad Laboratorio that the team of Ciudad Contexto was organizing in collaboration with the UPV university of Valencia! It was an incredible experience where we explored new ways of living in collaboration and equity with students from all disciplines. Many thanks for having thought of us to explore the matter of housing equity !!
We are very pleased to have published the catalogue of the #WeirdSpace workshop that we launched in collaboration with InjuveSpain. It was a cycle of workshops that explored the city through the production of dinners in rare spaces in Madrid.
After a lot of work, I have been able to capture part of the research behind Loisaida in an article for the Arquia Foundation’s blog. Thanks to Arquia for giving me the opportunity to investigate more about the Loisaida neighborhood in New York.
After much effort the #UPHouse project becomes known on numerous platforms, including the great magazine MiCasa! Thank you very much for the opportunity!

I did not imagine that I was so excited that our #UpHouse work appeared in the magazine of the College of Architects of Madrid Coam. Historical, eternal, and unique I can say that I have shared publication with the greatest of architecture, which one day they also published in it and this is exciting .. Thanks to the proposal of the management team of the Federico Soriano Magazine, Pedro Urzaiz and Jacobo García-Germánde for persevering in the idea of an open and varied number, which groups diverse and contemporary initiatives of the Architecture of Madrid.
This Wednesday, October 23, 2019, I was invited as a jury to the DS3 (BAS) midreview with the amazing architects and also professors Lina Toro, Elena Perez and Adam Bresnick, to the course of projects that professors Matan Mayer and Sandra Herrera take in the Segovia School of Architecture. As always, I had a great time as a fish in the water and I hope to have helped all the students who showed their projects. See you in the final jury!
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 !!

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.
