amid.cero9 cultivates a post-digital, afterpop approach to the contemporary notion of space that enlists sociology, technology, media, politics and representation in projects ranging from architecture (Cherry Blossom Pavilion in Jerte Valley, Spain, shown at the 12th Biennale di Venezia, Giner de los Ríos Foundation in Madrid, Diagonal80 Industrial Pavillion in Madrid) to design (ESA Pavillion), ecosystemic studies (The Magic Mountain in Ames, We as a plague in Rome, TRP in Venice) and hybrid urban projects (Aijalaranta in Jyväskylä, or Hhouse in Balearic Islands).
Díaz Moreno & Gª Grinda are both architects and founders of amid.cero9. They are Diploma Unit Masters at the A.A. School, London (2009-), Directors of an Option Studio at the GSD, Harvard University (2015-), and Visiting Professors and Unit Directors at SAC Städelschule Architectural Class, Frankfurt (2016-). Previously they taught at the Institut für Kunst und Architektur Akademie der Bildenden Künste in Vienna. While teaching together in Madrid from 1998 till 2013 (in parallel at ETSAM and ESAYA UEM) they have been visiting professors and lecturers throughout Europe, Asia and the US. Their projects have been widely disseminated and they have won more than 40 prizes in national and international competitions. Their projects and writings of the last fifteen years were documented in 2014 in a publication entitled “Third Natures, a Micropedia” and an exhibition at the AA, London. Recent projects include Golden Balloon for MOT Tokyo, Palm Pavillion for Sharjah, United Emirates and Giner de los Ríos Foundation, the famous Institucion Libre de Enseñanza, Madrid.
