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.

Beyond the Labels: Celebrating 50 Years of Urban Design

An article for GSD News by Víctor Muñoz Sanz (MAUD ’11) and Christopher Roach (MAUD ’11)

 

On November 12 and 13, 2010, the Graduate School of Design hosted a symposium to mark the 50th anniversary of the urban design program at Harvard.

'Andinarchitecture' featured in Platform 3

Gund Hall Lobby, Harvard Graduate School of Design

November 1–December 19, 2010

Platform 3 considers the expanded boundaries of the Harvard University Graduate School of Design. It features not only selections of work produced at the GSD during the 2009–2010 academic year, but also the potential of that work to address broader questions and inform global initiatives. Whether exploring the potential of a new technology, redefining a typology, or engaging a community on the other side of the globe, the lines of inquiry beginning at the GSD consistently indicate relevance to larger social, cultural, and spatial questions.
