Roque Peña (linkedin) born in Madrid, is an Architect by the ESAyA (AID) of the European University of Madrid. He is undoubtedly one of the most experienced experts in theoretical architecture projects, parametric design, digital fabrication and ”creative actions” with robots, combining design and technology. Roque Peña is together with Jose Francisco Salinas, founding partner of EXarchitects, since 2013.

In 2012 he founded Waspmod, a research project and blog about 3d printing in architecture, design, and art. Through the Waspmod project, he collaborated with Ali&Cía in food-art projects such as At last, chocolate printing photographs! among many more delicious projects.

Roque has taught parametric design applied to architecture, digital fabrication and 3d printing, rhinoceros, grasshopper, among others. Since he began his career he has worked closely with various universities such as the European University or IED Madrid.
