Pablo Lorenzo-Eiroa, Ph.D., is a tenured associate professor; current director of the AI Lab, and first director of the Master of Science in Architecture, Computational Technologies program, which he co-developed including NYSED approvals, after authoring its curriculum. He is an international architect and scholar in the fields of architecture, urbanism, ecology, and computation. His work innovates in information-based representation and construction systems through materials, robotics, and digital fabrication.

He received his Doctor in Architecture from UIC Barcelona, his M.Arch II from Princeton University (with full scholarship), and his architecture degree from the University of Buenos Aires, where he completed studies for his second master's degree and a post-graduate seminar at the Superior School of Fine Arts de la Carcova.

He has won several awards, honors, distinctions, nominations, competitions and grants, including the Fulbright and the National Endowment for the Arts (Argentina, 2001–2004); granted O-1 Visa status by USCIS (2004); Honors by El Correo Gallego (2023); Municipal Arts Society New York City Summit (2017); several New York Institute of Technology and School of Architecture and Design incentives, awards, and grants (2019–2023); Butler Prize and EC-US Award from Princeton University (2001–2004); several professional national and international competitions, first and second prizes (1998-Present: CU, TAV), and finalist submissions (LMDC WTC 2002).

Professionally, Lorenzo-Eiroa is the design lead, along with research and development, of the experimental practice e-Architects (New York/Buenos Aires). e-Architects develops software, information "mapping" and "visualizations" implementing big data, including machines to "draw" and machines to "build," understanding them as proto-architectural. His built work includes parks, buildings, and installations in Buenos Aires, New York, and Europe.

Lorenzo-Eiroa's projects have been exhibited, installed, and presented in several publications and institutions, including The Venice Biennale (VIII, IX, XVI, XVII, XVIII); The Museum of Modern Art (MoMA, 2003, 2011); MAK Museum (2005); L'Arsenal de Paris (2007); The American Mathematical Society Bridges Conference and Joint Mathematics Meeting (AMS, 2018); Disenny Hub Barcelona (2011); NYC Media Lab (NYU, 2017); The New Museum Festival Ideas NYC (2011); The Instituto Cervantes (NYC); ACADIA; The Storefront for Art and Architecture; The Cooper Union Houghton Gallery (2014, 2015, 2017, 2018); and The Cooper Union Dean's Wall (2017).

Pablo Lorenzo-Eiroa authored and edited six books and more than 40 articles, several of which are indexed and were peer reviewed. Lorenzo-Eiroa's projects, articles, and interviews have been published in The New York Times (2002, 2008); RTV Galicia Bos Dias News (2023); Ethic Magazine (Interview, 2023); El Correo Gallego (2023); El Faro de Vigo (2023); Clarin ARQ (2002, 2008, 2012); La Nacion (1998); Constructs (Yale University SoA, 2011); Paradigms in Computation (eVolo); Imagining Ground Zero; The Generic Sublime (Actar/Harvard GSD); Plataforma Arquitectura; Arch Daily; Suckerpunch; Pidgin (Princeton), and many others.

Previously, he was an adjunct associate professor at The School of Architecture of Cooper Union (2004–2018). He was also the director of an innovative interdisciplinary digital representation and fabrication program (CE). He has been appointed visiting associate professor at University of Pennsylvania, Columbia University, UIC Barcelona, Sapienza University in Rome, Universidad Torcuato Di Tella, and the University of Buenos Aires.

He was invited to lecture and present on many occasions, including keynote conference lectures and invited lectures spanning more than 60 opportunities at institutions globally including: New York Institute of Technology, The Cooper Union, Princeton University, Harvard University GSD, Rice University, Art Institute of Chicago, ETH-Zurich, ENSA-Strasbourg, UIC Barcelona, University of Alicante, Sapienza University in Rome, Tongji University, University of Buenos Aires, Hong Kong University, Tel Aviv University, Universidad Catolica de Puerto Rico Ponce, UCE, and others.
