My work focuses on the anthropological analysis of space transformation processes at the urban and architectural scale. The objects of my research are situations of negotiation and collaboration between institutions and civil society that question the role of social critique in the project. I am also interested in the implications of ethnographic methods in both spatial design practice and urban research.
