Sergio Lopez-Pineiro

Lecturer in Landscape Architecture

Sergio Lopez-Pineiro is an interdisciplinary architect, whose work explores voids as socio-spatial phenomena of freedom, diversity, and spontaneity.

Lopez-Pineiro is the director of Holes of Matter, a design studio operating at the intersection of architecture and landscape. It aims to look at the mutual influence between sociocultural forces and spatial organizations, and imagine existing and potential gaps to redefine relations between individual and collective forms of life. Lopez-Pineiro is a lecturer in landscape architecture at the Harvard Graduate School of Design, where he teaches design studios and theory seminars on architecture and landscape with a focus on the public nature of the built environment. He has previously held the 2006-07 Reyner Banham Fellowship at the University at Buffalo and the 2014-15 Daniel Urban Kiley Fellowship at Harvard University.
