Nina Shen-Poblete is a researcher and designer poised at the edge of architecture and art. Her work prioritises the process, and her on-going research utilises material theory and the philosophy of technical objects to investigate process as an end in itself, shaped by cultural and social forces. In 2017, she founded HOP Projects CT20 in Folkestone, a cross-disciplinary and experimental platform for installation art and performance.
As an architect Nina has run her practice from London since 2014, with a portfolio of several experimental interior projects, a completed house renovation and extension, as well as an installation for RIBA as part of Regent Street Windows in 2016. She has been an associate lecturer at Oxford Brookes University since 2013, teaching B.Arch and M.Arch courses.
