Initially trained in computer engineering and commerce, and later in architecture design, history, and theory, my work since has combined these three fields. I am currently the Curator of Architecture and Digital Initiatives at the Guggenheim Museum where I organized the museum’s first ever online exhibition, Åzone Futures Market, and am currently working on Countryside: Future of the World with AMO / Rem Koolhaas in New York (2019) and Architecture Effects in Bilbao (2018). I am also an Adjunct Professor of Architecture at the Columbia University Graduate School of Architecture, Planning and Preservation where I teach seminars on the consequences of contemporary techno-culture on architecture and its deep history and near future.
