There's no one way to read (or use) El Site, because it's always two things at once. This is a space of doubles:
fluid and structured
spatial and digital
readable and coded
accidental and planned
playful and systematic.

El Site's also both a performative writing methodology and a publication output for my research on queerness, digital technologies, and the built environment. Composed of fragments published in real-time, El Site becomes a live narrative and record of the research through a series of ongoing essays, musings, photos, and conversations. The project was generously funded by the FIPI (Fondos Institucionales Para la Investigación) award at the University of Puerto Rico Río Piedras Campus.

Dr. Regner Ramos obtained his Bachelors in Environmental Design (2008) and Masters in Architecture (2010) from the University of Puerto Rico School of Architecture. In addition, he holds a PhD in Architecture (2016) from The Bartlett School of Architecture (UCL). He has taught at Central Saint Martins College of Art and Design, London College of Communication, University of Hertfordshire, and Queen Mary University of London. Currently, Regner is a tenure-track Associate Professor at the UPR School of Architecture, where he teaches courses on architectural design, architectural theory, and magazine production in the undergraduate and graduate programs, while also working as Editor-in-Chief of informa journal and as the Architecture Editor at Glass magazine. His new, two-year research project “Cüirtopia: Mapping a Cultural Memory and Architectural Register of Queer Spaces in Puerto Rico” is funded by FIPI (2020-2022), and his first book, co-edited with Sharif Mowlabocus is called Queer Sites in Global Contexts (Routledge 2020). With his partner Kleanthis Kyriakou, he co-directs their architectural practice Wet-Hard Agency, most recently being awarded Graham Foundation funding for their two-year project, "Coloso: A Factory of Queer, Digital Monuments" (2021-2023). Their project "Spread the Secret" is being shown at the 17th Architecture Venice Biennale, in the Cyprus Pavilion. Ramos's work is on exhibitions in Germany, Portugal, and Italy this year. You can contact him/it/them here, see his calendar here, and see what he/it/they are up to on Instagram.

I'm currently not taking any new primary graduate supervision for the year 2021-2022. However, I'm interested in partaking in secondary supervisions for Doctoral and Masters students researching: Gender, Sexuality, Urbanism, Architecture, Ephemerality, Mapping, Artifacts, Decolonialism, Technologies, Queerness, and Drawing.
