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.

Ayer Laura Janka y un servidor tuvimos la oportunidad de presentar en el  "Foro de Oportunidades de Colaboración en Ciencia, Tecnología y Negocios" organizado por HUMA (Harvard University Mexican Association), y que tuvo lugar en TSAI Auditorium del CGIS South.

El evento consistió en una serie de presentaciones de interesantes proyectos desarrollados por estudiantes mexicanos en Harvard con el fin promover el intercambio de ideas y para aprovechar la visita del LatIPnet ( y cerca de 40 inversores mexicanos.

El proyecto fue muy bien acogido y este encuentro nos ha abierto nuevas vías para llegar implementar  en México en un futuro esperamos no muy lejano.

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.
