An architect, activist, and researcher, Sergio engages with aesthetic and political practices of transitional justice by using memory as an entry point. He has contributed to the development of eleven memorials for distinct events of violence—both in contestation of and in collaboration with different levels of the Mexican government. Sergio works closely with victims of human rights violations, their advocates and communities, to mobilize critical theories coupled with advanced technologies and transdisciplinary reasearch methods in a diversity of political, cultural, and legal forums.
A Chevening scholar, he received with distinction his Masters degree at Goldsmiths University of London, where he researched with Forensic Architecture cases of violence perpetrated by states, corporations, police and military. He is a member of the Memory Studies Association, and has received fellowships at the Aspen Institute, Bloomberg Philanthropies, and Monument Lab. He is currently adjunct professor at the School of Architecture of the National Autonomous University of Mexico, where he co-directs re/presentare, the Mexican unit for forensic architecture and visual investigations that is member to the Investigative Commons.
