Punctum Color


Andreia Garcia (Guimarães, 1985) is a Portuguese, Porto-based architect, curator, researcher and consultant of architecture, design and urban scenography. Founder of Andreia Garcia Architectural Affairs, she has specialized in the dissemination of architecture through research, curatorial practice and editorial projects.

 

Garcia was project coordinator of ‘Smaller Cities’ and project manager of the ‘Creative Landscape’ projects in Guimarães 2012, European Capital of Culture. In 2015 was curator of Theatro Circo de Braga leading the ‘Projeto Memória’ which celebrated the theatre’s centenary and was editorial and programme coordinator of the Portuguese Representation of the XXI Triennale di Milano. In 2017, she assumes the curatorship of the architecture programme for the Biennial of Contemporary Art of Maia. In the same year she was invited to curate two exhibitions for the Vertical Gallery, in Porto, where she explored the boundaries between Art and Architecture in dialogue with the building’s architecture – ‘Endless Space. Proposition of the Continuous’ and ‘Rhythm of Distances: Propositions for the Repetition’; in 2018, she designed, programmed and curated the first edition of the ‘MAM’ ( Architecture Month of Maia), dedicated to the life and work of the architect João Álvaro Rocha; in 2019, she presented the ‘MAM’19’ entitled ‘Fast Forward’ for which she invited eight emerging architecture studios and four architecture critics to imagine the 2119 Maia – an exhibition on the future of territory, the landscape, the environment, architecture, technology, mobility and society; this year, Garcia is the general curator of the Bienal de Arte Contemporânea da Maia ’19, under the title ‘Import/Export’, which is represented by four disciplinary axes (architecture, design, plastic arts and new media) and is displayed in sixteen containers spread over seven different points in the territory of Maia. Since 2016 she has co-founded, with Diogo Aguiar, the ‘Galeria de Arquitectura’ [Architecture Gallery], an independent space dedicated to the architecture thinking, in Porto.

 

In recent years her architecture work has already been selected twice for the FAD Awards (2018 and 2019), and Dezeen awards (2019) and published in international magazines such as Dezeen, Domus, Designboom, Archdaily, among others.

 

Her PhD in Architecture from the Faculty of Architecture of the University of Lisbon (FAUL, 2015) received the Professor Manuel Tainha Award for the best PhD thesis in Architecture by FAUL, and was published in book under the title ‘City, Architecture and Scenic Space’. She is Guest Assistant Professor at the School of Architecture of the University of Minho (EAUM) and is Assistant Professor at the University of Beira Interior (UBI).
