Luisa Brando is dedicated to producing visual art and architecture projects sensitive to heritage conservation and dichotomies between nature and culture, tradition and development. Working between disciplines and geographies, her site responsive work invites to reflect upon the territory and the poetics of habitation. Brando currently teaches at Universidad de los Andes (Bogotá), coordinates a Master Plan in Ibague, and continues her artistic work on the geopolitics, images and imaginations of water and other living beings. Brando holds a Bachelor in Architecture from Universidad de los Andes (2013) and a Master in Design Studies in Critical Conservation from Harvard University (2018). She has been granted the Harvard Asian Center Grant (2017), and a Fulbright Scholarship (2016). Has been a fellow at UNION DOCS Summer Lab (NY-2019), participant in Center for Art Design and Social Research (Mexico-2019), and did an artist in residence at NAHR (Italy-2018). Born in Bogota, now based in Madrid.
