Camila Huber Barbosa

Camila Huber is from Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, where she was professionally trained as an Architect and Urban Designer. At the Harvard Graduate School of Design, she is currently pursuing a Master of Architecture in Urban Design as well as a Master of Landscape Architecture. Her research agenda seeks a deeper understand of the international capital flows and its impact on processes of urbanization. More specifically, her interests lies on understanding globalization processes and its imprint on the contemporary landscape, with that she aims to mediate tensions between locality and globalization. At her time at the GSD, she has been balancing courses in both the Landscape Architecture and Urban Planning and Design departments, constantly seeking to operate in the intersection between Landscape and Urbanism. Prior to coming to Harvard, she practiced as an architect in Brazil and briefly in the US., where she collaborated with several offices in projects on a range of scales, but mostly looking to intervene in the public domain, in the field of Urban Design. For instance, some highlights of her brief career as an architect were the participation in a Slum Re-urbanization project in Rio de Janeiro, the collaboration with the South America Project Research of Harvard GSD and being the team member for the Vietnamese German University project when interning for Machado and Silvetti Associates.
