Curriculum Vitae

Dr. Juliana Canedo started in May 2020 as a DFG-Research Fellow associated to the TU-Berlin, Faculty VI, Habitat Unit as a Principal Investigator of the research project entitled „Beyond the Shelter: understanding the limits and potentialities between emergency and endurance in Refugee Camps in Germany“. The research project will be concluded in April 2023.

She has 15 years of work experience in research, teaching and designing. Her research focus is on collaborative methodologies in the development of architectural and urban solutions in self-built spaces, mainly in favelas and squats in Brazil. She has been working with topics such as insurgent planning, subaltern design and the right to the city focused on both Brazilian and German contexts. She has a Master’s Degree and a Ph.D. in Urbanism from the Post Graduate Program in Urbanism of the Federal University of Rio de Janeiro (Brazil), with one collaboration period at the Fakultät Architektur und Urbanistik of the Bauhaus-Universität Weimar (Germany). She is a former assistant professor of the Faculty of Architecture and Urbanism of the Federal University of Rio de Janeiro. Since 2018 she participated in the organization of five workshops funded by DAAD in a collaboration between TU-Berlin and Prourb-FAU-UFRJ.

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 was one of the winners of the national competition entitled Morar Carioca for methodological approaches in upgrading of favelas in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil.
