CAZA (Carlos Arnaiz Architects) is a New York-based design studio and urban consultancy committed to an optimistic future for architectural thinking. Our studio is both a workshop and a think tank. We produce buildings and ideas without a prejudice towards the primacy of one over the other. Our work represents an engagement with the history of making buildings and placing them in complex dynamic environments. Our team consists of design professionals from around the world who share a dedication to the transformative power of architecture. We are currently developing a masterplan in Bogota, Colombia; a resort town in Palawan, Philippines; and a hotel in Boracay, Philippines. CAZA’s design for the Taipei Contemporary Music Center, produced in collaboration with officedA, was selected from hundreds of entrants as one of three finalists. We also have multiple masterplan projects under construction.
