Lorenzo Pezzani is an architect and researcher on the Forensic Architecture project whose work deals with the spatial politics and visual cultures of migration and human rights, with a particular focus on the liquid geographies of the ocean. Since 2011, his research has focused upon a critical analysis of the militarized border regime and the politics of migration in the Mediterranean Sea. In collaboration with a wide network of contributors, the research has produced materials that challenge the regime of visibility in this contested area and provides tools for use in the struggle for the rights of migrants and for freedom of movement. He teaches at the Bartlett School of Architecture, University College London (UCL) and at Goldsmiths. His writings have appeared in various journals and edited books. He is also a member of the Model Court group and a co-founder of the “WatchTheMed” project. He is a PhD candidate in the Centre for Research Architecture, Goldsmiths University of London.
