Logman Arja's research focuses on Ecotechnology and Rural Architecture. He is thoroughly examining responsive systems and disruptive approaches to re-valorize the rural economy.

Currently, he is leading efforts to adopt the technology of additive manufacturing in Sub-Saharan Africa with a long-term goal of producing sustainable housing solutions and rural micro-infrastructures.

With a conscious and deliberate intent to instrumentalize architecture and technology to help transform local communities in developing countries, the courses he teaches confront students with questions of how architecture, technology, and innovation can offer solutions to some of the world's most pressing issues, i.e., poverty, epidemics, environmental degradation, and civil unrest. As a proponent of interdisciplinary research, teaching, and experience, he offers his students the opportunity to work in new places, ecologies, and new approaches.

Arja has won numerous awards for his scholarly and creative works, including Ventulett NEXT Generation Fellowship at Georgia Institute of Technology, the Design for Spatial Justice Fellowship at the University of Oregon, John K. Branner Traveling Fellowship, Big Ideas award and the MasterCard Foundation Scholarship at UC Berkeley, Rondine Cittadella della Pace Fellowship in Italy, and the Fulbright Scholarship at the City University of New York.
