She studied architecture at the TU Delft, ETSAB Barcelona, AAM in Mendrisio, and the IUAV in Venice. She holds visiting professorships at the Bergen School of Architecture in Norway and at the Accademia di Architettura di Mendrisio. In 2019, her office completed the Z33 house for contemporary art in Hasselt, Belgium.

The Berlage Keynotes is an ongoing lecture series featuring internationally prominent architects, designers, and thinkers who are at the forefront of design discourse and innovation. Organized and hosted by The Berlage, the series is part of the Faculty of Architecture and the Built Environment’s Public Programs held on Thursday evenings. A selection of speakers working from different disciplinary perspectives and in different geographic, cultural, and political contexts present how their work engages with contemporary issues and debates. This spring semester, speakers include Christ & Gantenbein, OOZE, Francesca Torzo, Manthey Kula, PRODUCTORA, Anna Puigjaner, Vector Architects, Kieran Long, and Diener & Diener.
