New Formalism is a design through research studio in which new forms of political expression in contemporary cities are explored. This research group based in the Architectural Association since 2009 understands form as a fundamental matter in the work of the architects. We have explore in these terms different urban typologies (Block, High-rise, Hyperbuilding, the Artefact) in different large cities of Latin America  and the Mediterranean. This design unit has been taught by Dr. Francisco Gonzalez de Canales and Dr. Nuria Alvarez Lombardero.
