Felipe is an architect trained at the University of Chile (2004) and obtained his Master in Architecture at the Catholic University of Chile (2008). From 2004 to 2011 he taught architectural design and architectural history and theory, and also worked in urban history research. In parallel, he developed a professional practice, independently and in association with other professionals, ranging from territorial planning and management projects to the architectural scale. His interests are situated in the areas of architectural and urban design, history and theory, having presented his research in conferences and exhibitions in South America and more recently in the UK. His Master’s Thesis ‘Landscape of Absence’ was showcased in the XVII Biennale exhibition of Architecture of Santiago (2010). Through his research on the notion of absence in urban leftovers, he explores processes of design and representation as a way of prompting new understandings and alternative interventions in the built environment. Since 2011 Felipe studies these matters at the Bartlett School of Architecture, University College London, where he obtained a PhD by Architectural Design in 2017 with full funding given by the government of Chile. First supervisor Dr. Ben Campkin, second supervisor Prof. Jonathan Hill. Source of funding: Holder of a full-support scholarship (Beca Chile), given by his country for MPhil/PhD studies in the UK.
