David Gil is an architect whose main work is centred on the relationship between design strategies and affective ecologies. His approach to architecture ranges from an interest in the outsider social realms to the active propositional research.
He graduated from the University of Alicante with the highest honors, obtaining a Distinction with his final Master’s thesis “The Closet. A series of techno-affective devices” which has appeared in miscellaneous publications and selected as one of the best ten Master’s theses in Architecture in 2018 by ArchDaily Spain. At the same time, he was appointed as Honorary Professor and collaborated in diverse projects that bring together social and design research so as to build up academic architectural proposals.
His collaborations with multiple architects and designers have resulted in numerous international projects in Spain, the United States, Canada, Brazil, United Arab Emirates, Qatar, Norway, Austria and Singapore. He has received different awards such as the 1st prize for the renovation of the patio at Alicante’s Higher Polytechnic School, the 1st prize for ASCER’S ceramic materials innovative use contest with the project Foam Ville, and special distinctions by Schindler for the project Screen House. Furthermore, his work has been exhibited at the 16th Venice Architecture Biennale and published on platforms like Arquitectura Viva, i2 magazine (Research and Innovation in Architecture), ArchDaily Spain and Diseño Interior, among others.
