Andrés Jaque, Office for Political Innovation

Andrés Jaque is the founder of the Office for Political Innovation, a Madrid/New York based practice that develops architectural projects that bring inclusivity into daily life. All the firms projects can be seen as durable assemblages of the diversity ordinary life is made of. He is an Advanced Design Professor at the Graduate School of Architecture, Planning and Preservation (GSAPP) at Columbia University, and Visiting Professor at the Princeton University School of Architecture (SoA). He received the Tessenow Stipendiat in 1998 from the Alfred Toepfer Stiftung FVS in Hamburg, and is a visiting professor at a number of international universities.

UCLA Architecture and Urban Design’s (AUD) 2017-18 public lecture series “This, Not That” invited thought-provoking speakers to present arguments for their respective positions, or ideological stances, toward the design of the built environment. Arguments were supported by presentations of creative efforts in research, pedagogy or professional practice. The series staged an ongoing debate around the shifting perspectives that frame creative practice.
