Portrait of Almudena Ribot
Department of Architecture

Almudena Ribot joined the faculty of the Department of Architecture in the fall of 2018.

Prior to that she was a professor of design at the School of Architecture ETSAM, Universidad Politecnica de Madrid. Her academic interests focus on three interrelated fields: industrialization, customization and environmental, social and economic sustainability.  She lead the Design Studio Group UD.RIBOT, also called CoLaboratorio, which included three additional instructors at the graduate and undergraduate levels. 

Almudena also co-directs her own architecture studio since 1990. Her practice focuses on the priority of systems and construction as project languages, in particular the use of industrial systems and customizable solutions. One important project to this regard is, among 44 works executed, CUATRO 50 Industrialized Housing System, co-directed since 2007. 

In academic education, Almudena is interested in collaborative processes. In 2009, she co-founded the CoLaboratorio Group: Manufacturing, Prototyping  and Collaboration, in which she has developed projects, teaching, and research with this focus.
