Personal profile


Ph.D. Lecturer in Architectural Design and Architectural Technology at ESALA since 2015. Chartered architect in Spain since 2000 and in UK since 2018.

Following the studies of Architecture at the Polytechnic Universities of Valencia and Madrid, I developed professional practice for over fifteen years through bblab, co-founded with Luca Brunelli in Madrid in 2000. The work has been awarded and exhibited internationally, for instance the low-cost incremental social housing in Valdivia, Chile, developed with Elemental in 2004 and the residence J House in Rocafort, Spain, 2012.

I am course organiser at the undergraduate programme and design tutor at ESALA. Former teaching roles include part-time lecturer at the University CEU in Valencia between 2004 and 2013 and design tutor at the Mackintosh School of Architecture and ESALA between 2013 and 2015.

My current research focuses on the cultural dimension of Joan Littlewood's and Cedric Price’s Fun Palace project during the 1960s and 70s. Through close reading of a range of archive material, it analyses the conditions of production, circulation and reception of this complex project to argue for the central role that media plays in the constitution of its critical agenda, and to challenge the often stable image constructed in architectural scholarship. It has been published in Architecture and Culture, ARQ: Atqchitectural research Quarterly and in Drawing Matter. More broadly, I am interested in exploring the cultural dimension of architectural artefacts and discourses in relation to the experimental architectures of the 1960s and 1970s, to heritage and cultural memory and to the design of social housing.
