I graduated as an architect and urban designer from Pontifícia Universidade Católica of Rio de Janeiro (PUC-RIO), Brazil. Through an exchange programme, I had the opportunity to study in Portugal, at Faculdade de Arquitetura da Universidade Técnica de Lisboa (FAUTL) and I also spent one semester at the École Nationale Supérieure de Toulouse(ENSAT), France. Once I graduated, I moved to Paris and spent 6 months working in a French architecture firm called BRS architectes ingenieurs. Back to Rio de Janeiro in 2011, I joined RRA office team for three years, where I had the opportunity to work with high rise commercial buildings as well as urban and landscape design. Between 2014 and 2015, I collaborated with RUA arquitetos in the design of the Golf Clubhouse for the 2016 Olympic Games. In July 2016, I earned an international master degree in Urban and Environmental Engineering through PUC-RIO in partnership with Technische Universität Braunschweig, Germany. Once I concluded my master, I opened my own firm Mariana Magalhães Costa Arquitetura, in Rio de Janeiro.
