Silvia Susanna is an architect and independent researcher based in Rome. Her interests are in critical spatial practices, community-driven projects, speculative design research and storytelling. Her focus is primarily on projects that are questioning or reflecting established assumptions of the built environment and its relative social, cultural and political implications. She has collaborated with architectural firms and informal collectives as architect, design researcher, assistant curator, project manager, and recently filmmaker in Italy and abroad, often in multi-disciplinary groups. Currently she is running a research project on “home as space of cultural production.” Her work has been part of BIO50-Biennial of Design Ljubljana; Art and Architecture Venice Biennale; Milano and Vienna Design Week.
