Curriculum Vitae

Juliana's research focuses on urbanization processes in poor areas in Brazil, especially favelas and squats.
She completed her doctoral dissertation, "Right to another city: squats and favelas as tactics for struggle and transformation" (in Portuguese), at PROURB-FAU/UFRJ (Brazil) with a 9 months Doctoral Sandwich at Bauhaus-Universität Weimar, in April 2017. In 2012 she completed her master's thesis, "Urban Interventions in Favelas - the architect in the collective process of construction and transformation of cities" (in Portuguese) at PROURB- FAU/UFRJ (Brazil).

In 2008 she made a one year post graduation course entitled: Sustainability in the project: from object to city, at PUC-Rio. Before that she studied architecture and urbanism at FAU/UFRJ (Brazil), where she graduated in 2006.Before joining the Habitat Unit Team, Juliana worked as an assistant professor at the Department of Urbanism at FAU/UFRJ (2014-2015). There she taught several disciplines, such as "Urban Design", "Urbanism and Environment" and "Analysis of the Urban form", where she tried to combine theory and practical work. She also developed with Prof. Paula Albernaz the elective Discipline "Transformação do Espaço Construído", where students and professors developed design projects, technical reports and events that helped the inhabitants of a favela in their struggle against eviction and also to provide elements to improve the quality of their spaces. She was also a researcher at the Núcleo de Atividades de pesquisas e extensão sobre o Morar, PROURB-FAU/UFRJ (2010-2017).

Juliana is also co-founder – with Jacira Farias – of Dois Tempos Arquitetura e Urbanismo, an architecture and urbanism atelier, where she developed projects in different scales, from housing and commercial projects to urban planning and design. Among her work, there were several studies and design projects for favelas such as Rocinha and Cidade de Deus. In 2010, along with Jacira Farias, Victor Andrade, João Huguenin and Patricia Maya, she participated in a national competition entitled Morar Carioca, that intended to select 40 architectural offices to develop projects for urbanization in 200 favelas in Rio de Janeiro. The competition was focused in methodological approaches and their proposal was selected as one of the best five works presented.
