My name is Thomas Lozada, and I am an architectural designer with a Master of Science in Architecture degree from Pratt Institute (2011) and a Bachelor of Architecture degree from the New York Institute of Technology (2007).

My graduate thesis explores the idea of the library as one of many building types that are being eroded by the increasing pervasiveness of digital data.  It examines the co-evolving histories of library buildings and media types–particularly digitized books–and extrapolates current technological trends to determine the adjusted societal role that the library could potentially play in as little as ten years.  My proposal synthesizes social media and digital interface design to produce an immersive environment that connects people in new ways.

I am currently a junior architect at C3D Architecture and a professor of architecture at the New York Institute of Technology.  I have previously worked for KOL/MAC LLC (2010), Bentel and Bentel Architects (2007-2010), and AB Architekten (2006).  Our design team at Bentel and Bentel Architects has won several awards for the Rouge Tomate restaurant, which has also been featured in the April 2009 issue of Metropolis and the August 2009 issue of Hospitality Design.
