Lecturer and Fab Lab Director
I am an architect from ETSA Madrid. I was part of Medialab Madrid, a center for the art, science and new technology. Since 2005, I have edited Archfarm a magazine focused on theoretical thinking, critic and the latest proposals about architecture, art and science.
I moved to Ireland in 2007 and became part of the committee of the Architectural Association of Ireland. In 2008 I was commissioned exhibition designer for The Lives of Spaces Ireland’s Participation at the 11th International Venice Architectural Biennale 2008.
I currently live in Cordoba (Spain) where I have founded Colaborativa.eu a design, technology and social action agency our projects range from art installations to grassroots urbanism actions, mapping software applications and free culture advocacy. I have been invited lecturer at the DIT, Dublin; ETSA Alicante and part of the visiting teachers program of the Architectural Association in London.
