Sol Pérez Martinez
Curriculum vitae

Sol Pérez Martínez is an architect and postdoctoral fellow at the Group Hultzsch (gta-ETH) in the project ‘Women Writing Architecture’. Her postdoctoral research focuses on the experiences of Latin American women writing about architecture and the built environment during the 18th and 19th centuries.

After receiving her architecture and master’s degree from Pontificia Universidad Católica de Chile, Sol ran an architectural practice where she and her firm partners developed projects for private clients and the Chilean government. Their last public building in 2014 was a school in the South of Chile, which inspired her research about architecture, education and public engagement. Since then, Sol has collaborated with teachers, artists, architects and community groups in public history projects, curating educational programs, conferences and exhibitions to widen the public’s involvement in architecture and the built environment.

Sol has lectured at The Bartlett as a module leader for the MSc Learning Environments and at Pontificia Universidad Católica de Chile as part of the undergraduate architecture programme. She has also been invited to present her work internationally, including at the Whitechapel Gallery, Tate Exchange, Slough Museum, Urban Education Live, Folkestone Triennale, Central Saint Martins and Max Planck Institute.

Sol holds a PhD in Architecture & Education from The Bartlett and the Institute of Education at UCL, as well as a Master in Architectural History from the same university. In addition, Sol has received grants and fellowships in support of her research from the Chilean Government, The Bartlett Faculty of the Built Environment, and the Canadian Centre for Architecture. Sol has participated as a consultant, critic, and advisor in community groups and universities in Chile and the UK.
