The John H. Daniels Faculty of Architecture, Landscape, and Design welcomed Carla Juaçaba on January 27, 2015 for the inaugural Kohn Shnier Architects Lecture.
Since 2000, Carla Juaçaba has developed her independent practice of architecture and research based in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. Her office, Carla Juaçaba Arquiteta, is currently engaged in both public and private projects, focusing on housing and cultural programs. Carla has worked with architect Gisela Magalhães of the Niemeyer’s generation since she was an undergraduate student mostly in the area of exhibitions related to Brazilian native arts and historical museums. During her first year after college, she worked jointly with architect Mario Fraga on the “Atelier House” project. Following that, a series of projects have been conceived such as the “Rio Bonito house” (2005), the “Varanda House” (2007), the “Minin House” (2008), and “Santa Teresa House” in its final stage (2012).
Current works include the ephemeral pavilion conceived with the senior scenographer and theater director Bia Lessa, “Humanidade” for Rio+20, the recent international meeting held in Rio de Janeiro. Carla Juaçaba is constantly taking part in the academic and teaching realms, as well as research studies, lectures, biennales, exhibitions and recently was on the Jury at BIAU Bienal Ibero Americana in Madrid (2012). Carla Juaçaba won the first edition of the international prize ArcVision Women and Architecture.
The goal of the Kohn Shnier Architects Lecture is to feature early-to-mid-career architects who have made significant contributions to the combined professional, educational, experimental, and community-based arenas in which they practice.
