The architect Francisco Javier Seguí de la Riva graduated from Madrid’s Technical School of Architecture (ETSAM) in 1964, and has been a Doctor of Architecture since 1966. Since 1974 he has been a Professor of architectural forms analysis at the school. He received a special mention of teaching excellence at the Polytechnic University of Madrid in 2010.

The architect develops a practice of architectonic space design founded on the creative imagination. Liberated from its technical function, design dovetails into a kind of graphic research that is close to geometric abstraction. His work has been presented in various venues including at the ZKM | Media Museum of Karlsruhe (2008- 2009), the Museo Nacional Centro de Arte Reina Sofia in Madrid (2009-2010) and the MACBA in Barcelona (2012).
