Clarissa Rodrigues Machado
Architect & Urban Planner, Master in Neuroscience Applied to Architectural Design
From Brazil's vibrant landscapes, Clarissa established her career in Italy as a consultant and researcher. She holds postgraduate degrees in Construction Management, Project Management, and Neuroarchitecture and a master's in Neuroscience Applied to Architectural Design, which provided her with a comprehensive view of architectural nuances. Beyond the conventional architectural approaches, Clarissa has coordinated academic panels at Università Iuav di Venezia, and her editorial contributions can be found in the Journal of Eco+Urbanism & Neuroarchitecture.
Clarissa's determination to connect human sciences and architecture has led to collaborations with professionals worldwide. She has actively participated in learning platforms, podcasts, journals, and forums that further the interdisciplinary dialogue. Her master’s thesis presentation at Biennale di Architettura di Venezia 2023, alongside affiliations with the Academy of Neuroscience for Architecture (ANFA), the International Living Future Institute, and the Habitarmonia Academy, illustrate her commitment to the field.
Having integrated the Moving Boundaries Italy edition in December 2023, Clarissa aspires to help redefine how to perceive and craft spaces, emphasizing their intrinsic impact on human experience and well-being.
