Ana Peñalba holds a Master’s degree in Architecture with an emphasis in Environmental Studies and Bioclimatic Architecture from the Polytechnic University of Madrid. In 2005 she co-founded the Architecture Collective Leon11 as an experiment in collaborative learning spaces. Ana currently works as an Urban Design Researcher at Terreform under the direction of Michael Sorkin, is a design member of Awindow and collaborates on other trans-disciplinary projects focused on the performance of architecture in public spaces. Her work aims to find the ways in which architecture can not only build spaces, but also a sense of collective consciousness. She is regularly invited to be a guest critic at The Cooper Union for the Advancement of Science and Art, Anne Spitzer School of Architecture (CUNY), GSAP Columbia School, Pratt School of Architecture, FIT and The New York School of Interior Design.
