Luiza GuimarĂ£es Furia

is a designer and researcher based in New York City. She received her Master of Architecture from Columbia University Graduate School of Architecture, Planning and Preservation and her Bachelor of Arts from Columbia College.

Her primary interests stem from the intersection of neuroscience and materialism, or in other words, how things are sensed and experienced. She makes projects that seem a bit out of place in their contexts in the hopes of encouraging some kind of meditation about why things are the way they are. Through drawing, video, and writing, she investigates the inherent beauty and absurdity of our contemporary existence.
