Economies in Post-Packaging

Born in Madrid, Spain, Julio Salcedo holds a B.A. in architecture and sculpture from Rice University, and a Master of Architecture from Harvard University. He is an Associate Professor of Architecture at The City College of New York and the principal of Scalar Architecture—an award-winning design firm based in New York City.  Professor Salcedo has taught at Harvard University, the University of Pennsylvania, Syracuse University, and Cornell University. In addition to his 2011 book Generic Specific Continuum, Professor Salcedo’s work has been exhibited at the Farnsworth Museum and has been widely published.

Professor Salcedo is a registered architect in the EU and the US and has won major design awards such as the Architectural League Prize and the Europan Prize. Prior to funding Scalar Architecture, Salcedo worked for some of the most recognized firms in the field such as Machado Silvetti, SOM, the sustainability leader Cook and Fox, and Pritzker Prize winner Rafael Moneo. As the term indicates, Salcedo’s practice—scalar Architecture—operates at a variety of scales collaborating with key allied experts. The fruits of these collaborations are all-embracing projects that garner accolades for their transformative solutions such as its recently completed master plan for Hamar, Norway.
