Cristina Parreño Alonso

Artist, Hyde Square public art project

Cristina Parreño Alonso is an architect, designer, and educator at the School of Architecture and Planning at MIT where her research Transtectonics explores cultural and environmental implications of expanded temporal sensibilities in architectural material practice. Her tectonic translations — material transfers across mediums and temporal scales, human and more-than-human — embody narratives that are told in the form of essays, exhibitions, and through architectural projects and installations that activate public spaces.

She was commissioned for the Hyde Square public art project with Amin Tadj.
