Francesco Sebregondi

Research Fellow, Forensic Architecture

Francesco Sebregondi is an architect as well as a Research Follow at Forensic Architecture. His work explores the intersection of violence, technology, and the urban condition. He is the architect of the on-going PATTRN project, an open-source tool for data-driven, participatory fact-mapping designed to be used in the fields of conflict monitoring, human rights, or citizen journalism. He also coordinated the Gaza Platform project in partnership with Amnesty International, in which he used geospatial techniques for reconstructing events, by knitting together data from remote sensing satelites from hundreds of videos and images.

He has also taught in the School of Architecture at the Royal College of Art, on the topic of “architecture and activism”. Since 2015, Francesco Sebregondi has also been a doctoral candidate at the Centre for Research Architecture, Goldsmiths University of London.
