Jose Luis Garcia del Castillo Lopez (MDesS ’13)
Having worked as an architect and university instructor in his native Spain, Garcia del Castillo has undertaken a range of projects in the Technology concentration. In the Design Robotics Group, he partnered with fellow students in developing a strategy for mass customization of architectural ceramics using robotic technologies and CNC-fabricated components. The group’s work was recognized at the 2012 Smart-Geometry Workshop. “The labs and facilities are amazing and they all are very accessible,” he says. “The equilibrium between a theoretical, critical approach and a hands-on approach has been really valuable. It has made me more aware of the conceptual implications of my work.”
