Estefania Mompean Botias currently pursues her Ph.D. at ALICE laboratory at EPFL (2021-2025). Her research explores the Emergency conditions, the study of their ambivalences, examining the new connotations of regulation that the Emergency States are acquiring, and identifying how architecture and urban studies respond to these situations. Before that, she has worked in Paris and New York, developing a conceptual vision for the Sensual City Studio, actively participating in international urban projects, architecture design, publications, and installations. During this collaboration, she has been involved in several publications as Mindwalks, 8 graphic narratives through Shanghai, 2016, and A History of Thresholds: life, death, and rebirth, 2018.


She studied at Escuela Politécnica Superior de Alicante, Spain ( EPSAlicante, Master of Architecture and Urbanism), and in TUDelft University, The Netherlands (MSc Architecture, Urbanism and Building Sciences). In 2010 she received a bursary from the Fundación ARQUIA Official Chamber of Architects in Spain for her academic career. She has been an invited review juror at the GSAPP of Columbia University, The École nationale supérieure des Arts Décoratifs, the École Spéciale d’Architecture of Paris and others.
