Dr Marcos Cruz is a designer, researcher, academic and critic.

His design research investigates the impact of innovative technology on current design practices, in particular the advent of synthetic life in architecture. He is interested in advances in new digital media and biotechnology within a design context that is increasingly more interdisciplinary, while simultaneously focusing on a new spatial, programmatic and linguistic dimension of architecture and the city.

Cruz’s work has been extensively published and exhibited and he is recipient of the RIBA President’s Research Award for Outstanding PhD Thesis. For the past four years he has been Director at the Bartlett School of Architecture, UCL. He is co-founder of the atelier ‘marcosandmarjan’ whose design-lead investigations focus on the applicability of new design techniques and innovative construction technologies on architecture.


Multistory is a student and alumni led guest lecture programme series at Canterbury School of Architecture, University for the Creative Arts that seeks to invite architects, designers, writers, curators, photographers and artists to speak about their work.
