Emiliano Cevallos

  • Associate
  • London

Emiliano was born in Mexico City where he gained an Architecture and Urbanism degree from the Unversidad Iberoamericana. After graduating he continued his studies at the Architectural Association in London, from where he holds a Masters degree in Housing and Urbanism.

Prior to joining Populous, Emilliano worked for an engineering consultancy firm where he gained in-depth experience designing challenging geometric structures for prestigious projects. This involved working closely with lead architects, spanning the gap between their form generation aspirations and the analytical tools which structural engineers employ to achieve realization.

Other responsibilities included coordinating design and fabrication information, and optimizing and enhancing the performance of complex geometries using computational techniques on projects like the Glasgow Riverside Museum of Transport, Media Cite Shopping Centre in Belgium or King Abdullah International Gardens.

Emilliano joined Populous in 2009 to work on the First Direct Arena project, where he was particularly involved in the façade design, implementing BIM strategies and coordinating with the subcontractors. The Arena, the most sustainable arena in the UK with a BREEAM Very Good rating, was opened to great acclaim in 2013.

Emiliano has been deeply involved in the Dubai Expo 2020 masterplan project, and major arena projects in Europe and the Middle East. Emiliano also worked on the Circuit of Wales Masterplan, and stadium and training centre plans for Queens Park Rangers Football Club in west London. He is currently busy helping to develop stadium and training centre plans for a top level European football client.

With a passion for the potential of sport architecture to affect social change, Emiliano is leading a group of global staff on the EMEA region’s partnership with streetfootballworld and their Festival 16 event, held in Lyon to coincide with the 2016 European Championships.
