Yojairo LomeliLecturer II in Architecture
Yojairo Lomeli, an architectural designer, is a lecturer in architecture at the University of Michigan’s Taubman College of Architecture and Urban Planning. Since joining the faculty as an intermittent lecturer in architecture in 2015, he has received the 2017 and 2018 Donna M. Salzer Award for Teaching Excellence, becoming the youngest member of Taubman College to receive the honor. Lomeli also has been nominated three times for U-M’s Golden Apple Award, the only student-nominated award that recognizes outstanding teaching. In addition, he was part of the teaching team that won the 2017 U-M Provost’s Teaching Innovation Prize.
Lomeli is a co-founder and partner of cc-bb, a practice with two engines, always in sport-mode, with one focused on design research, agility, and development of breadth, and the other rooted in design making, execution, and competence of advanced (as well as traditional) fabrication methods.
Lomeli holds a Bachelor of Science in architecture and a Master of Architecture with high distinction from the University of Michigan. His graduate thesis, “The Yada Yada,” was recognized with top honors; it investigated the potential between hip-hop and architecture in the design of an institution for the continued production of these cultural affinities in the ever-changing landscape of Detroit.
