Carlos Navarro is a new media artist, architect, and creative technologist based in Los Angeles. His expertise lies in integrating generative AI, CG animation, and simulation technologies to create innovative architectural typologies, reflective of the interplay between digital and built environments. His focus is on exploring the creative feedback loop between generative AI and users to transcend the generic bias inherent in AI. Navarro's work revives the relevance of architectural ornament and semiology, unlocked by the unprecedented computational power of the current digital era. Using AI, he creates multi-dimensional architectural artifacts that explore digital materiality and architectural representation agencies for worldbuilding and tokenization.

Navarro has over a decade of experience in architectural practice working with distinguished firms in Los Angeles, including OFFICEUNTITLED, Steinberg Hart, and P-A-T-T-E-R-N-S. He holds a Master of Design Research from SCI-Arc, and currently works as a Senior Project Designer at OFFICEUNTITLED, specializing in computational design applied to active public space. His work has been featured on renowned digital platforms such as ArchDaily, Frame, Architect Magazine, The Architect’s Newspaper, etc.

Concurrently, he is actively engaged in new media art exhibitions and academia. Recently, his artworks have been exhibited in K11 Musea in Tianjin, China, the :IIDRR Gallery in New York, Gallery 90220 in Los Angeles, and the Mobile Detroit 2050 Exhibition. He has served as an adjunct professor in computational design at Universidad de Los Andes, Bogota, and has lectured, published papers, and run workshops on AI and computational design at Computer-Aided Architectural Design conferences, including DesignMorphine, Harvard Graduate School of Design, Woodbury University, ACADIA, CADDRIA, DigitalFUTURES, and the SHARE Bucharest Forum.
