Felipe Lanuza is a practising architect, researcher and educator from Chile. He holds a PhD in Architectural Design from the Bartlett School of Architecture, UCL. He was trained as an architect at the University of Chile and obtained his MArch at the Catholic University of Chile. His work experience ranges from territorial planning and management to the architectural scale. Felipe’s interests are situated in the areas of architectural and urban design, history and theory. Through his research on the notion of absence in urban leftovers -and with special attention to experimental photography as a means of reimagining reality- he explores processes of design and representation as a way of prompting new understandings and alternative interventions in the built environment. Felipe has taught and exhibited internationally, and is a member of Urban Transcripts. He currently teaches at the BA in Architecture and MA in Landscape and Urbanism at Kingston University, and is a post-doctoral researcher at the UCL Urban Laboratory and the Bartlett School of Architecture. Felipe’s doctoral and postdoctoral work are fully funded by CONICYT, Chile.
