I am an architect, writer, and educator. I received my PhD from ‘The City as a Project’ program at the Berlage Institute and TU Delft. I have taught in various schools of architecture, and currently work at the Architectural Association School of Architecture (AA) and LSBU in London. My practice develops research-led curatorial projects, among them are: The Architecture of Fulfillment for the Venice Biennale (2014), Revolution Begins at Home for Sharjah Architecture Triennial (2019), Zoe Zenghelis: Fields, Fragments, Fictions for Carnegie Museum of Art (2022).
Between 2017-19 I coordinated the ‘Transitional Territories' (formerly known as Delta Interventions) graduation studio and research group at TU Delft Faculty of Architecture. Previously I held an associate lecturer position, leading a MArchD RIBA Part II studio, at the School of Architecture, Oxford Brookes University. In 2016-17 I completed a Post-Doctoral Research Fellowship at the International Institute of Social History (IISH) in Amsterdam on ‘Labour Movements and the Architecture of the City’.
I am co-founder of research collectives, The City as a Project and Behemoth Press, based in London and Rotterdam; both active in architectural education at the Phd and post-graduate levels as well as research and curatorial projects. My projects are exhibited internationally at the Venice Biennale 2014, 2016, and 2018, Barcelona Architectures Festival: Model 2022, Sharjah Architecture Triennial 2019, Oslo Architecture Triennial 2016, Lisbon Architecture Triennial 2016, Dallas Museum of Art, Maxxi Museum (Rome), Enric Miralles Foundation (Barcelona), Triumph Gallery (Moscow), Anise Gallery (London), and Campo (Rome). My latest project, a research-based curatorial project on the work of Zoe Zenghelis, was exhibited in London (AA, 2021, Betts Project, 2020-21) and Pittsburgh (Carnegie Museum of Art, 2022).
As a writer, I regularly publish articles, essays, and books. I am the author of Gabriel Guevrekian: The Elusive Modernist (2020), editor and co-author of Tehran- Life Within Walls (2017), co-author of Nazgol Ansarinia: Inquiries into the Present (2021), Sir Banister Fletcher’s History of Architecture, 21st Edition (2020), Rituals and Walls: The Architecture of Sacred Space (2016), The City as a Project (2013), Cities to be Tamed (2013), among other titles. I co-edited Aesthetics and Politics of Logistics (2019) and co-curated Tehran: Wake Up! An Anthology of Bidari-e Ma (2019). My recent book, Do You Remember How Perfect Everything Was? The Work of Zoe Zenghelis, is published by AA Publications in 2022.
