Sebastián Adamo was born in Buenos Aires (1977). He completed his undergraduate studies at the University of Buenos Aires (FADU-UBA) and postgraduate studies at the Polytechnic University of Catalunya (ETSAB-UPC). He was a professor at FADU-UBA and at Torcuato Di Tella University. He was invited to teach and lecture at numerous institutions including the Canadian Center for Architecture, the Princeton School of Architecture, the Harvard Graduate School of Design, the Politecnico di Milano, the Royal Institute of British Architects in London, the Illinois Institute of Technology in Chicago, the École Polytechnique Fédérale in Lausanne, the Polytechnic School of Architecture in Madrid and the Pontifical Catholic University of Chile, among others.
Together with Marcelo Faiden they founded Adamo-Faiden, an architectural firm established in Buenos Aires in 2005. Their practice extends to the field of teaching and research, and has been internationally recognized by different media and institutions. Their works were exhibited at the Sao Paulo Architecture Biennial (Everyday, 2019), at the Chicago Architecture Biennial (Make new history, 2017), at the Deutsches Architekturmuseum in Frankfurt (Building and living in communities, 2015), at the Storefront for Art & Architecture in New York (Blueprints, 2015), at the LIGA gallery in Mexico City (An environment, 2012) and at the Guggenheim Museum in New York (Contemplating the void, 2010), among others. Four monographic publications compiled the work of Adamo-Faiden, the last of them published by TC Cuadernos in Spain (“The Contemporary Constructor”. Valencia, 2018), one published by Casa Editrice Libria in Italy (“Adamo-Faiden 2007-2017”. Melfi, 2017), another by the 2G of Gustavo Gili in Spain (“2G Nº65 Adamo-Faiden”.

Last year Domus Italy recognized Adamo-Faiden among the world´s most innovative architecture practices.
