Eduardo Cilleruelo Terán

Eduardo Cilleruelo Terán is a New York/Madrid-based architect and educator. Since July 2023, he has held the position of Design Teaching Fellow at the College of Architecture, Art, and Planning at Cornell University. As part of his research and practice, he has been committed to the analysis of infrastructural relationships under the canopy of data management and its consequences in the architectural realm. Recently, he was awarded with the Prize of Excellence (Space Group, Seoul, November 2022) for his studies of data civicness and urban possibilities in vertical public connectors in New York City. In collaboration with Associate Professor Jesse LeCavalier, he cocurated a public exhibition and symposium, "Data Clouds," in Berlin (June 2023) addressing the domains of technology intersecting with architectural typologies. In parallel, he investigates museum institutions and inter-infrastructural dimensions through the lens of politics and history. Recently, he presented the paper "A Phantom Museum?" in the AMPS Congress (Prague, June 2023) following those premises.

​He graduated from Cornell University, College of Art, Architecture, and Planning in 2022 after completing the Master of Science, Advanced Architectural Design, where he received the Award for Outstanding Performance in Architecture at AAP, Cornell University in December 2022. In addition, he earned a Master and Bachelor in Architecture from Universidad de Alcala (Madrid, 2017, 2016, respectively). Before joining Cornell University, he previously held an appointment at Montana State University, where he taught studio courses on the study of spaces in-between private and public in local typological buildings in the city of Bozeman.

​In combination with his academic career in the exercise of practice, he collaborates with international and multidisciplinary professionals. Cofounder of ACT (Architecture, Construction Technology—young architecture practice) and coeditor of Momentum Magazine, a physical publication on sharing architectural manifestos. His work has been exhibited and published at the Venice Biennale, Chamber of Architecture of Madrid, Spanish Royal Academy at Rome, and Cornell University.
