I am an architect and Assistant Professor at the School of Architecture of the University of Illinois at Chicago. While teaching design studios and theory seminars at The Berlage Institute, TU Delft, the Rotterdam Academy of Architecture, and the RomaTre University, I earned a PhD in History and Theory of Architecture from the Delft University of Technology. I am part of the research collective The City as a Project, I cofounded Matteo Mannini Architects and the think-tank platform Behemoth Press, and I worked with the Office for Metropolitan Architecture and DOGMA. Some of my projects have been exhibited in international venues such as the Venice Biennale (2006, 2014, 2016), the Oslo Triennale (2016), and the Lisbon Triennale (2019). I regularly write for architectural magazines and academic journals (Log, Volume, OASE, San Rocco, Domus, Flat-Out, Counter-Signals), and I am part of the editorial board of the Journal of Architecture Education. I recently coedited The Architecture of Logistics (2018), coauthored Tehran: Life within Walls (2018), and contributed to the volumes Work, Body, Leisure (2018), and Aesthetics and Poetics of Logistics (2019).
