Sergio Lopez-Piñeiro

Sergio López-Piñeiro is an Assistant Professor in the Department of Architecture at SUNY Buffalo. He received his Diploma in Architecture from ETS Arquitectura Madrid in 1998 and his Master of Architecture from Princeton University in 2004, where he was awarded the Suzanne Kolarik Underwood Prize. He has previously worked at NoMad (Madrid, 1998–2000) and at Foreign Office Architects (London, 2000–2002). Currently, he maintains an independent design practice, Holes of Matter, and is a registered architect in Spain.

Like a blank slate, Sergio López-Piñeiro’s work focuses on architecture that is emptied of function, memory and meaning. His work attempts to define “blank architecture” as an empty and undetermined space filled with infinite possibilities: an architecture that is virgin and amnesic, ready to be appropriated freely.
