Daniel Cardoso Llach is Associate Professor at Carnegie Mellon University, where he teaches architecture, directs the Master of Science in Computational Design (MSCD), and co-directs Code Lab. His recent work includes the book Builders of the Vision: Software and the Imagination of Design, which identifies and documents the theories of design emerging from postwar technology projects at MIT, and traces critically their architectural repercussions. He is a Graham Foundation grantee and the curator of a recent exhibition on the history and possible futures of computational design. His writings have been published in journals including Design Issues,Architectural Research Quarterly(ARQ), and Thresholds, among others, and in several edited collections, including The Active Image: Architecture and Engineering in the Age of Modeling (Springer 2017) and DigitalSTS: A Handbook and a Fieldguide (Princeton 2019). Daniel routinely lectures and teaches workshops around the world. He holds a Bachelor of Architecture from Universidad de los Andes, Bogotá, and a PhD and MS (with honors) in Design and Computation from MIT. He has also been a research fellow at Leuphana (MECS), Germany, and a visiting scholar at the University of Cambridge, UK.
