Artist Tomás Saraceno creates inflatable and airborne biospheres with the morphology of soap bubbles, spider webs, neural networks, or cloud formations, which are speculative models for alternate ways of living. An artist trained as an architect, Saraceno deploys theoretical frameworks and insights from engineering, physics, chemistry, aeronautics and materials science.

Juan Herreros is a PhD Architect, Chair Professor and Director of the Thesis Program at the Madrid School of Architecture, Spain as well as a Visiting Professor at Columbia University. He has previously taught at EPFL, Lausanne, Architectural Association, London, Princeton, and ITT in Chicago. In 1984, he founded together with Iñaki Abalos the office Abalos & Herreros, in 1992 the Multimedia International League, and in 2006 his current office, Herreros Arquitectos, through which he pursues his professional, teaching and pedagogical activity.
