Luz Paz Agras
I am an assistant professor in the School of Architecture of Universidade da Coruña, where I teach theory of architecture. I graduated as an architect from this same school, and then completed a master's in contemporary art at Universidade de Santiago de Compostela. In 2013, I earned a PhD from Universidade da Coruña with a thesis on 'Contemporary Exhibition Spaces, 1923-1942. Interaction between Art and Architecture', under the supervision of Dr. Fernando Agrasar. My research continued at the Bartlett School of Architecture of University College London, with a postdoctoral scholarship from Fundación Barrié. Since 2004, I have been working in architectural projects and as an exhibition curator. My proposals have received several recognitions, such as in the XIV and XV Awards of the Architects Association (Galicia), the selection in Arquia/Proxima 2012 (Barcelona), or the shortlisting in the Summer Exhibition 2014 of the Royal Academy in London. Since 2010, I am a member of the editorial board of DARDOmagazine: Art+Design+Architecture (Spain + Portugal) and I am currently co-editor of the Scopus-indexed Boletín Académico.
