Mr Diego Calderon


Having graduated from the Accademia di Architettura in Mendrisio (CH) in 2008, I have worked in the offices of Francisco Aires Mateus in Lisbon and of Jonathan Woolf & Duggan Morris in London. Along with teaching at Kingston, I run DFN+DC architects with Dario Franchini in London and Lugano (CH) since 2016.

I am PhD candidate at the Accademia and my research centres on the urban condition of the Mexican-American border, mainly based on the concepts of region, system theory and border territories.
