Tiago Campos

Tiago Torres-Campos is a Portuguese landscape architect whose work explores multidisciplinary approaches to contemporary landscapes, cities and wider complex territories. His interests focus on intersections between contemporary landscape practice and the Anthropocene, as well as landscape representation through digital and social media. He is currently preparing an edited book exploring some of these topics.

Following a design attitude of practice through craft, Torres-Campos’ more experimental work has ranged from digital fabrication and modelling to video production and speculative writing. Through his ongoing doctoral research on Architecture by Design, he investigates ways of thinking geologically about Manhattan.

As a practitioner, Torres-Campos has gained experience in landscape architectural design, regional and master planning in both urban and rural landscapes. He was responsible for delivering award-winning proposals in international competitions, and also for managing the research and international communication teams. He has published internationally, and he is the founder of CNTXT Studio, a research-by-design platform focusing on the trans-disciplinary study of landscape.

Before joining RISD’s faculty, Torres-Campos taught at the University of Edinburgh, Scotland, and the University of Lisbon, Portugal.
