Architect and instructor Natalia Escobar Castrillón teaches architectural history, theory, and conservation at the Harvard Graduate School of Design and at Boston University. In her research, Natalia develops models and concepts for the theorization of emergent architectural conservation practices across the world considered outside the traditional canon. She also edited the journal Materia Arquitectura in 2015 and is the founder and editor of the journal OBL/QUE since 2016, which received the Haskell award from the New York Center for Architecture. Natalia holds an M.Arch from the University of Seville, an M.Des from the Harvard GSD and is a Ph.D. candidate at the Harvard GSAS.

In her lecture, "Architectural Conservation and The Consumption of History," Natalia will be discussing how alternative conservation practices can extend the value of historical artifacts beyond their commodification within the contemporary capitalist system.
