C+ arquitectas is a spatial design and research agency based in Madrid and London. With a special interest in collaborative practices, digital media and environmental pollution, it develops architecture projects, environmental mediations, ephemeral installations, exhibition design and visualisations, challenging materials and temporalities of architecture practice and modes of construction. Its work has been exhibited in the Canadian Centre of Architecture (Canada), LABoral (Spain) or at the Museum of Contemporary Art (Chile) and published in C3, Public Culture or the Journal of Political Economy. Currently our pedagogical projects are being developed at the Centre for Interdisciplinary Methodologies (Warwick, UK), GSAPP (Columbia, US) and Universidad Rey Juan Carlos (Madrid).

Nerea Calvillo is an architect and researcher, founder of C+ arquitectos.

She is the founder of In the Air, an ongoing project designed to provide digital visualization of air pollution, and was co-curator of the Connecting Cities Network.

Calvillo received her PhD from Polytechnic University of Madrid in 2014 after receiving her Masters in Advanced Architecture from Columbia University as a Fullbright Scholar. She completed a post-doctorate research fellowship at Citizen Sense, Goldsmiths, University of London, and received the Poesies Fellowship from New York University. She has taught at the UEM, Alicante University, Architectural Association, GSD Harvard and GSAPP Columbia.

She is currently assistant professor at the Centre for Interdisciplinary Methodologies (Warwick, UK). Her research explores the material, technological, political and social dimensions of environmental pollution at the intersection between architecture, feminist studies of technoscience, new materialisms and urban ecological policies.
