Luis Carranza

Luis E. Carranza is Adjunct Associate Professor at Columbia University’s Graduate School of Architecture, Planning and Preservation and Professor of Architecture and of Art and Architectural History at Roger Williams University in Bristol, Rhode Island. He obtained his B.Arch. at the University of Southern California and his PhD in Architectural History and Theory from Harvard University.

His research and published work focuses primarily on modern architecture and modern art and architecture in Latin America (with an emphasis on Mexico). This work emphasizes the relationship and codependence of social, literary, philosophical, and theoretical ideas within the historical and material culture of architecture and design. Much of his research on these historical and theoretical themes can be found throughout his publications and, specifically, in Architecture as Revolution: Episodes in the History of Modern Mexico (University of Texas Press, 2010) and in Modern Architecture in Latin America: Art, Technology, Utopia with Fernando Lara (University of Texas Press, January 2015).
