Camila is a Ph.D. candidate at the Department of Architecture working on twentieth century architectural practices. Her dissertation focuses on the architectures of circulation that were formed, established, and exploited during the post-war period between the United States and Latin America. It analyzes the processes, protocols, components and techniques through which the discipline was both deployed and mobilized as a field of knowledge and exchange during these years. It aims to explicate how circulation operates both spatially and materially, and through it, to address questions of power, identity, and culture more broadly. Camila holds a Bachelor’s degree in Architecture from Pontificia Universidad Católica de Chile (2013) and an MSc. in Critical, Curatorial and Conceptual Practices in Architecture from Columbia University (2017). She has been the recipient of scholarships from the Comisión Nacional de Investigación Científica y Tecnológica (CONICYT, Chile) and the Lassen Fellowship from Princeton (2017-2018). She has experience in the curatorial and editorial fields as well as teaching, and has published her work in Revista ARQ, The Avery Review, among others.
