Event Description

Mariana grew up in Portugal before settling in London.  Mariana explains how this has helped to shape her work. Mariana discusses the various design opportunities she has been able to explore in the UK and internationally that she might not have in the Portuguese industry.

Mariana discusses the opportunities and challenges she explores when working with parametric, generative and digital design.  The work Mariana does as Senior Architect Designer at Zaha Hadid is specifically in the International Competitions and Commissions High-End Design cluster. She explains what it is that draws you to the competitive side of architecture.

One of Marianas competition-winning projects is Tower C, one of two twin towers now in construction in a new tech district of Shenzhen, China. Mariana tells us about the concept behind the design and where she is now in the build process.

In addition to Mariana's professional practice, she also teaches Maya Audodesk at Architectural Association’s Design Research Lab.  Mariana explains what is it that makes Maya such a powerful tool for emerging professionals.
