Iker Mugarra Flores studied architecture at the AA in London and has collaborated with a variety of architects and studios, focusing in holistic and associative approaches in large and small-scale projects that integrate advanced geometries and parametric logics, integrated design engineering for DFMA and optimization, prototyping, detail engineering, fabrication and environmental strategies.
Iker was part of CLOUD9_ Enric Ruiz Geli studio as a project architect and also collaborated and taught at the IAAC – Institute for Advanced Architecture of Catalonia (Barcelona). Iker also worked at Newtecnic Ltd. as an associate leading the Façade engineering Package of The Grand Theatre of Rabat by Zaha Hadid among many other international high-profile projects. During this period, he also ran, in parallel, the computational and media courses at The Bartlett/UCL, B-Pro: March Urban Design-Morphogenesis Lab Courses (London) as tutor and computational consultant (2013-2015).
