HI!

AM

TALITA.

WORK

Born and raised in São Paulo-Brazil, I graduated in Architecture and Urbanism at the University of São Paulo and later relocated to the United States where I currently live and work. Equipped with a broad design education ranging from graphics to objects and spaces; throughout the past 10 years I have focused on the architecture and interior design of educational and civic spaces. Having also worked in landscape architecture and custom site furnishings, my experience has allowed me to explore several areas and scales of design and to consistently stretch my design skills while navigating among them. The process of design thinking is a common language between all design fields and is the tool with which I approach new challenges and opportunities as I search to expand my portfolio to different design fronts.
