Carlos is Principal of Carlos Arroyo Architects and Founder/Director of Digital Rural Lab. He teaches at Universidad Europea de Madrid, where he is Curator of the Masters in Architecture.
The Digital Rural Lab was created in 2018 to study the digital revolution in the rural and the remote, exploring implications in terms of Architecture, Engineering, Urbanism, Landscape and Design. The aim is to show rural-native phenomena, avoiding the more usual urban-centric approach, looking into the ways that the 50% of population that continue to live in the countryside are empowered and self-organised using digital technologies.
He is a Member of the Europan Europe Scientific Committee since 2004, helping cities and territories across Europe find the right strategy for their difficult areas.
