Sanz Serif, a makeshift nickname earned as a result of my typographic likes, is the umbrella under which I present the diverse facets of my work: academic research on architecture and urbanism, design speculations, graphic design, curatorial and editorial work, and writings developed individually or collaborately, in institutional settings or independently.

Current focus: Workscapes.

My proposal Lights Out: Emerging Spaces and Territories of Non-human Labor received an honorary mention of the jury of the 2016 International Call for Fellows of Het Nieuwe Instituut. The jury appraised it as "is a timely and solid proposal that analyses the production of space for and by fully-automated industry. Lights Out! reveals how economic decisions and industrial processes function as key factors in the development and direction of spaces and entire territories." 

The proposed case studies are the Philips production centre in Drachten, the automated greenhouses for flower production and the Maasvlakte II in the Port of Rotterdam. Lights Out wishes to reveal full automation’s hidden spatial production.
