On the 17th and 18th of October I had the great pleasure to take part of the ‘VI FESTIVAL arquia / proxima 2018 – Relevant Practices’, held in Madrid, where I talked about my work as architect, curator, researcher and professor and how the reflection of the future of architecture and the cities is presented on that.
It was amazing the opportunity of participate in a reflection from different realities arising from different countries like Spain, Portugal, United Kingdom and Chile.
