Ana María León

Ana María León is an associate professor at Harvard Graduate School of Design.

León’s work traces spatial practices and transnational networks of power and resistance as they shape modernity and coloniality in the Americas. Her research and teaching foregrounds the agency of populations under struggle and the multiple forms of bias embedded in the built environment and its histories. León is author of Modernity for the Masses: Antonio Bonet’s Dreams for Buenos Aires (University of Texas Press, 2021) and A Ruin in Reverse / Bones of the Nation (ARQ, 2021).
