Carlos Garciavelez

Carlos Garciavelez is a Mexican designer, architect and urbanist. His research and design work departs from a trans-scalar approach to design that spans from fashion and interior furnishings to urban landscapes and open territories.

In 2012, he received the Druker Traveling Fellowship from the Harvard Graduate School of Design for his project:  “Form and Pedagogy: An Atlas of the Twentieth Century University City in Latin America” that explores the historical evolution of these campuses across Latin America and the diverse design synergies that tie them together.

Before establishing his own design practice, Carlos worked for diverse design studios including Gabellini Shepard Associates in New York City and the Alexander McQueen fashion house in London.   He holds a BFA and a B.ARCH from the Rhode Island School of Design and a Master of Architecture in Urban Design with distinction from Harvard.
