Alexander Auris (he/him) is a Peruvian architect and researcher based in Brussels since 2018. In 2015 he received his bachelor’s degree at Pontificia Universidadl Catolica del Peru (PUCP), and he completed his master’s degree in architecture at KU Leuven, Belgium in 2020. His academic background is complemented by practical experiences in Denmark, Japan, and Cambodia. His research objectives have an intersectional approach, while his interests are the relations between social movements, performance, and space. He has developed restoration and museography projects in Lima and he currently works as an independent architect in Brussels.
His work deals with the preexistence and heritage, such as his ongoing research on archeological sites in Peru and its relationship with the contemporary city, the museography for the Pinacoteca Municipal Ignacio Merino in Lima, and Symbiosis coworking space.
Recently he has contributed in the exhibition Institution Building at CIVA Brussels, and Oslo Architecture Triennale. His work unfolds from an intimate exploration of his intersectionality in relation to space and it is presented in different types of media such as video, writing, performance, and spatial design.
