Sanz Serif, a makeshift nickname earned as a result of my typographic likes, is the umbrella under which I present the diverse facets of my work: academic research on architecture and urbanism, design speculations, graphic design, curatorial and editorial work, and writings developed individually or collaborately, in institutional settings or independently.

Current focus: Workscapes.

BIA Bilbao Urban Regeneration Forum 2018 [lecture / conversation]

On June 21, I chaired and moderated a panel on New Technological Horizons and Restructuring of Industrial Heritage part of the 2018 BIA Urban Regeneration Forum in Bilbao, Spain. The panel was opened by my lecture entitled "Platform Architectures" which builds on my essay for e-flux Architecture. This was followed by presentations by Jens Richter of Estudio Herreros, David Lorente of H Arquitectes, Yves Moreau of Studio Muoto, and Juan Francisco Paz Pascual of Sener. A one-hour long discussion and Q&A, which I moderated, ended the session.

The III BIA Urban Regeneration Forum focused on the relationship between the productive economy and the urban fabric. What role can the new productive models play in urban revitalisation? What examples of best practices can be found in our surroundings? What actions can guarantee the greatest success of the footprint of the city on the territory? Which hitherto unknown stakeholders would drive a revolution towards a more balanced territory between production and consumption?

Video recordings of the session will be made available at the conference website.
