I am an architect, writer and educator. rafagomo.com chronicles my architectural making, writing, teaching and curating activity, while criticalista.com is an archive of my writings as well as a platform for venting personal rants and observations. I studied architecture at the University of Waterloo (Canada) and at the Berlage Institute (the Netherlands). I direct the University of Calgary’s architecture term-abroad program in Barcelona and teach at CIEE, and have previously taught in the Metropolis Masters Program in Architecture and Urban Culture as well as at Carleton University and the University of Manitoba.
Criticalista assembles Rafael Gomez-Moriana's writings on architecture, cities and the built environment. Some of these texts have previously been published elsewhere and are reprinted here with permission. All photographs by the author unless indicated otherwise.
