Ernesto Oroza (b. 1968 Havana, Cuba) received a BA in Industrial Design from the Higher Institute of Design in Havana, Cuba, in 1993, and a Certificate in Graphic Design from the Polytechnic Institute of Design in Havana, Cuba in 1989.
Ernesto Oroza’s practice channels the tradition of Radical Architecture into his own analytical employment of contemporary object typologies and productive forces. In lieu of functioning within the realm of manufacturing, he produces and distributes speculative models and research through various publication methods, exhibitions, collaborative practices, documentaries, and unorthodox forays into more conventional modes of architecture, interior and object design.
He is a recipient of a South Florida Cultural Consortium Fellowship for Visual and Media Artists, Florida (2012), Harpo Foundation Grant, LA (2010), Guggenheim Fellowship (2007); and a Ludwig Foundation Fellowship (2003-2004).
