I’m an architect and independent curator interested in critical social practice and the role of fiction in design for an age marked by technological progress and an ecological crisis. I’m a member of the collective The Decorators, an interdisciplinary practice that makes collaborative public realm interventions and cultural programmes. Recently I co-curated the exhibitions The Future Starts Here (V&A, 2018) and Eco Visionaries: Art and Architecture After the Anthropocene at (MAAT, 2018; Matadero & Royal Academy, 2019). I gained a PhD in Architecture from the Bartlett School of Architecture. Previously, I worked as a curator at the Department of Architecture, Design and Digital at the V&A Museum and lectured at Central Saint Martins, Chelsea College of Arts, Royal College of Arts, Universidade do Minho and Sandberg Institute.
I was appointed curator of the 5th Istanbul Design Biennale. I’m now working on a programme called “Empathy Revisited: designs for more than one” which will open on the 26th of September 2020.
