Carla Juaçaba, “Perceiving and Working”

Carla Juaçaba founded her independent studio in 2000, in Rio de Janeiro, following a period of work in the office of Niemeyer-era architect Gisela Magalhães. With several projects on her own and in collaborations—including the Rio Bonito house (2005), Varanda House (2007), Minimum House (2008), and Santa Teresa House (2012)—Juaçaba is now involved in public and private projects for housing and cultural programs, such as Humanidade2012, an ephemeral pavilion for the international congress Rio+20 (with scenographer/director Bia Lessa). Juaçaba’s academic research, teaching, and exhibition design is ongoing; she was recently a juror at the Bienal Ibero Americana in Madrid (2012) and she won the international ArcVision Women and Architecture prize in its first edition, in 2013.
