The female gaze in architecture. Cersaie hosts three internationally renowned architects

The Ceramic Tile and Bathroom Furnishing Exhibition, Cersaie, pays tribute to female creativity with a focus on design, research and innovation. Meeting with Carla Juaçaba (Brazil), Izaskun Chinchilla (Spain) and Sarah Robinson (USA) Robinson on 27 September. Cersaie will be focusing on the vital contribution of women in architecture with a day event devoted to three internationally renowned female architects, professionals with innovative vision whose work has pushed back the frontiers of their field. On 27 September, the International Ceramic Tile and Bathroom Furnishing Exhibition will be hosting Carla Juaçaba (Brazil), Izaskun Chinchilla (Spain) and Sarah Robinson (USA), three architects who have followed very different career paths yet are united by their original stylistic explorations and multidisciplinary approach. The conference will be moderated by US architect Michael P. Johnson. Born in Rio de Janeiro in 1976, Carla Juaçaba started up her own practice in 2000. In 2013 she won the inaugural international ArcVision Women and Architecture prize. Her practice is currently involved in public and private projects for housing and cultural programmes. She has a special interest in the poetry and expressive potential of tectonics and explores the concept of place in terms of cultural continuity and phenomenological perception. She has collaborated with architect Gisela Magalhaesper on a project on Brazilian indigenous arts and historic museums and with architect Mario Fraga on the Casa Atelier project.     Since graduating in architecture in Madrid in 2001, Izaskun Chinchilla has gained extensive teaching experience at faculties in London, Paris, Geneva and Madrid. Today she combines her design work with a research project exploring the social and aesthetic impact of environmentally-focused technical solutions. As an architect she argues for the importance of a commitment to innovation. Her projects are multidisciplinary exercises in which architecture combines with ecology, sociology and science, transcending stylistic distinctions and addressing the complexity of real life in the contemporary world.   A native of Minnesota, Sarah Robinson studied philosophy in Switzerland and the United States, then graduated in drawing and painting at the Art Student’s League in New York before completing her training in architecture in Arizona and Wisconsin. She worked with a number of architects, then started up her own practice in 2000. Today she lives and works in California and is chair of the Board of Trustees of the Frank Lloyd Wright School of Architecture. Her projects explore the transparency of modern design while focusing on comfort and an intuitive and functional response to spatial needs.       Source: Cersaie Read more news related Cersaie published at Infurma Visit the Cersaie website
