Born in Spain, Diana moved to England at a young age and has continued migrating since, following a fascination for cities and the social and material systems that define them. She studied Architecture at Cambridge University where she developed research interests in migration and frontier urbanism and co-founded the ICT development conferences. She has worked at MGAARQTOS in Valencia [2006-7] and at MVRDV in Rotterdam [2007-9]. In 2008 she wrote for the Phaidon Atlas of 21st Century World Architecture, and in 2011-12 joined the editorial team of Phaidon's C20th World Architecture Atlas, which comes out in late 2012. Diana was based in Cairo 2009-10, mapping micro-scale infringements of the official urban order and their impact on densification. She also working as a journalist and creative editor for a Cairo design magazine. She is currently studying an MA in Transnational Studies at Münster. Cairo continues to be a major interest, as much for its rapidly evolving urbanism as for its creative flexibility - two vital ingredients of PLAY.
