Forensic Architecture is an independent agency that includes architects, scholars, artists, filmmakers, software developers, investigative journalists, archaeologists, lawyers, and scientists. It undertakes advanced research activities on behalf of international prosecutors, human rights organisations, and political and environmental justice groups. The agency has been shortlisted for the Turner Prize 2018 for its innovative methods of sourcing and visualising evidence relating to human rights abuses. With its affiliate group, Forensic Oceanography, it has investigated some of the most violent and controversial incidents of the recent years, including incidents with migrants’ boats in the Mediterranean, the Grenfell Tower disaster, chemical weapon attacks in Syria, and other cases.
Lorenzo Pezzani is a researcher for Forensic Oceanography, the Forensic Architecture’s affiliate group that was launched in summer 2011 to support a coalition of NGOs demanding accountability for the deaths of migrants in the Mediterranean Sea.
Chair: Marco Magini is a London-based writer.
