Alejandro Zaera-Polo (born Madrid, 1963) is the founder of London- and Barcelona-based practice AZPA, which integrates architecture, urban design and landscape architecture, working for public and private sectors on an international scale. His work has consistently merged architecture with theoretical practice, identifying social, economical, technological and political trends and translating them into architectural discourse. He trained at the Escuela Técnica Superior de Arquitectura de Madrid and Harvard GSD. He worked at OMA in Rotterdam (1991–93), prior to establishing Foreign Office Architects (dissolved in 2011).
Zaera-Polo is Visiting Professor at Princeton and Norman Foster professor at Yale. Previously he was Dean of the Berlage Institute in Rotterdam (2000–05) and held the Delft University Berlage Chair; he has taught at universities in the US, Japan and at the AA. His writings can be found in El Croquis, Log, A+U, Arch+, Archis and Volume, among other publications.
