Pedro Ceñal Murga is an architect, writer, curator, and researcher based in Mexico City. He is currently the assistant curator at Archivo, a space dedicated to exhibiting, researching and rethinking design and architecture in its many forms and outlets. Pedro was trained as an architect at the National Autonomous University of Mexico (UNAM) and the Technische Universität in Berlin. In 2016, as a Scholar from the National Fund for Culture and Arts (FONCA), he graduated from the M.S. in Critical, Curatorial and Conceptual Practices in Architecture at Columbia University GSAPP. During this time, he engaged in extensive research on a selection of different exhibitions and the institutional apparatuses supporting them. Likewise, he co-curated the symposium Interpretations: Mediating Realities at the New Museum’s NEW Inc. and worked in the Arthur Ross Architecture Gallery, where he was part of a small team responsible for the production of five separate exhibitions. Prior to entering graduate school, Ceñal Murga worked as designer and project manager for Colectivo IA02, Serrano Monjaraz Arquitectos and José Vigil Arquitectos, and participated in miscellaneous collaborative projects and competitions. His work has been published in Domus (ITA), Arquine (MEX), Harper’s Bazaar (MEX) and Fahrenheit (MEX) and has been exhibited in MUCA Museum (Mexico City), Instituto Helénico (Mexico City) and ZOMA Art Center (Addis Ababa, Ethiopia). Among other things, he is interested in the architectures produced by circulatory regimes. This preoccupation manifested most recently in his thesis project The Distributed Vertical Border.
