Teaching & Research Profile

Sergio is an Architect and Lecturer at WSA with interests in pioneering forms of professional practice and research at the convergence of computation, fabrication, material science and emergent tectonics.

After obtaining his Diploma from the Architectural Association in 2004, he worked for 5 years with practices in London (Foster + Partners and Adjaye Associates) on a variety of award winning commissions including the Contemporary Art Museum in Denver, the new Camp Nou Stadium in Barcelona, and other projects in locations such as New York, Milan and Dubai. Through these and other commissions he gained substantial professional experience in the implementation of digital/parametric technologies in architecture and design.

Current research interests relate to the scalability and spatial potential of structural nano-typologies as observed in bio-molecules and geo-matter.
