She was co-curator of the exhibition Walls of Air and co-editor of the homonymous book for The Brazilian Pavilion at the 16th Venice Architecture Biennale, a research project that reflects on the borders of architecture in relation to other disciplines like geography, medicine, anthropology, social sciences, arts, law, and politics. The project has been presented in New York, Rome, Beirut, and Lima to paint a vivid image of some of the most urgent topics for discussion in contemporary culture.
