Esther Rivas Adrover is an author, architectural researcher, educator and artist. After teaching Advanced Descriptive Geometry to architecture students in Spain she studied architecture at Oxford Brookes University where she later taught architectural design at degree and postgraduate level. Her interest in complex geometries led her to work for practices including Zaha Hadid Architects, where she worked on various projects in the UK and around the world. Her drawings have also been exhibited several times at the Royal Academy of Arts in London. She has recently published a book with the title ‘Deployable Structures’ commissioned by Laurence King Publishing, and she is currently undertaking research on the subject at the University of Cambridge.
