Javier Sánchez, Founding Partner & Director with JSa, is here for a special Tuesday Evenings presentation in conjunction with this year’s Fort Worth AIA Design Awards. In 1996, he founded JSa, a key architectural practice in the contemporary renewal of Mexico City, whose work focuses on projects of “urban acupuncture” and the recovery of the national architectural heritage. He is a lecturer at various universities in Mexico and abroad; professor in the graduate program at Washington State University (WSU), Seattle; and professor of the Master of Advanced Design at the Higher Institute of Architecture and Design in Chihuahua, Mexico.
