Branca has a degree in architecture from the University of Coimbra in Portugal and has studied and worked in a number of countries across the world. A continued interest in sustainable design and community engagement from projects early in her career led her to Article 25, along with a belief that architecture can transform lives.
Company description: Article 25 is an architecture charity based in London. We use design to improve health, livelihood and resilience to disasters. We are driven by Article 25 of United Nation’s Universal Declaration of Human Rights, which states that everyone has the right to adequate and dignified shelter. Our vision is of a world where all communities have access to better housing, safe school buildings and effective clinics and hospitals, and we provide the skills and knowledge needed to make this a reality.
