Patricio Pouchulu (born April 13, 1965, Buenos Aires, Argentina) is a Futurist contemporary architect.

Born in Buenos Aires, he graduated as an Architect at Universidad de Buenos Aires before moving to London to study with Peter Cook at the The Bartlett School of Architecture, University College London, where he got a M.Arch. He was awarded by the British Council and Fondo Nacional de las Artes. In London he met Susanne Biek, establishing Pouchulu Architects in 1999. He taught at the University of Buenos Aires (1989-1996), Fachhochschule-Munich, Germany (1999-2004). His approach to Futurism, Expressionism and African art gives his projects atemporal, refreshing atmospheres, already present in his early architectural drawings and paintings. His work is devoted to the exploration of unknown architectural territories and contemporary Utopias.
