Wed, Jun 12    11:30am
Uriel Fogué (elii architecture), will deliver the lecture “Guts, Ghosts, Portals, & Cannibals: From Construction Details to Ecological Contracts.” Oscar Oliver-Didier will give an introduction and will be joined by Elise Misao Hunchuck to provide a response following the presentation and host a Q&A session.

Uriel Fogué holds a PhD in architecture from the Polytechnic University of Madrid (outstanding doctoral thesis prize, academic year 2014-15; doctoral dissertation finalist at the X Bienal Iberoamericana de Arquitectura y Urbanismo, 2016).

Since 2006, he co-directs the architecture office elii, which has been part of the Spanish Pavilion at the 18th (2023) and the 15th Venice Biennial of Architecture (2016), awarded with the Golden Lion. Two of their works have been selected for the European Union Prize for Contemporary Architecture - the Mies Van Der Rohe Award (2015, 2019). Elii won the prestigious Golden Prize Holcim Awards (2023, together with Husos and Ultrazul). Their work Yojigen Poketto was selected as one of the 20 visionary domestic spaces of the last 100 years in the exhibition ‘Home Stories 100 Years, 20 Visionary Interiors’, at the Vitra Design Museum (2020). Elii won the FAD Award (2020, 2005), and were finalist and shortlisted for the FAD Award (2017, 2018, 2020). They obtained First Prize from the Madrid College of Architects (2017); and they have also won the COAM Prize on five occasions (2018, 2016, 2013, 2011, 2006).

Fogué combines his teaching and architectural practice with research. He is a founding member of the discussion and debate group Political Fictions Crisis Cabinet. He has collaborated with the Institute for Postnatural Studies and the Mutant Institute of Environmental Narratives.

He is author of the book The Architectures of the End of the World (Puente editores, 2022), awarded at the XVI Bienal Española de Arquitectura y Urbanismo 2023. Along with the members of elii, Fogué is co-author of the books: What is Home Without a Mother (HIAP MataderoMadrid, 2015), awarded at the XIII Bienal Española de Arquitectura y Urbanismo 2015, Super Petites Maisons (EPFL, 2022) and Beyond the Limits (CentroCentro, 2020). He is co-editor of the book: Planos de intersección: materiales para un diálogo entre filosofía y arquitectura (Lampreave, 2011, with Luis Arenas) and co-editor of the publication UHF (1998-2010), listed in the Archivo de Creadores de Madrid.

His article “Technifying Public Space and Publicizing Infrastructures: Exploring New Urban Political Ecologies through the Square of General Vara del Rey”, published in the International Journal of Urban and Regional Research (IJURR, 2013), together with Fernando Domínguez Rubio, was highlighted as one of the most relevant texts in the last 40 years of this scientific publication.

Fogué teaches at Columbia University in the City of New York (GSAPP) and at the Polytechnic University of Madrid (UPM). Has also taught at the École Polytechnique Fédérale de Lausanne (EPFL) and the Universidad de Alicante (UA), among others.
