Biography
Interdisciplinary architect working from research to practice. Masters in Architecture Project and Theory at PUC-Rio (2021), Graduation in Architecture and Urbanism (2013) at PUC-Rio. Continuing Education in Literature, Art and Contemporary Thinking (2018) at PUC-Rio and in the Foundation Course in Arts at EAV Parque Lage (2011). She co-founded Entre, a collective of architects with whom she investigates architecture and its urban transformations through verbal reports. She co-authored the publication “8 Reactions for Afterwards”, Rio Books (2019) and “Entre: Interviews with Architects”, Vianna and Mosley (2013). She participated in the the 16th Venice Architecture Biennale, the X São Paulo Architecture Biennial, the XIII Buenos Aires Architecture Biennial. She worked at Rua Arquitetos and Studio-X Rio, in Rio de Janeiro in 2013, Acme Space in London and Mecanoo Architecten in Delft, Netherlands between 2011-2012. Through multiple training, she maintains an ambivalent practice of research and practice. Architecture appears as a field of experimentation to act on the territory as a mediation between the built and unbuilt environments.
