Louise’s team has participated in the renowned Venice Architectural Biennale since 2012, and their work is part of the 2021 Biennale opening on May 22nd with the theme “How Will We Live Together?”. Her experience creating these environmental installations in Venice has added insight to the evolution of the built work of her firm, establishing an ongoing reciprocal relationship between architectural concept and architectural reality. In this conversation with Martha Thorne, current dean of the IE School of Architecture & Design in Madrid, Spain and former Executive Director of the Pritzker Architecture Prize since 2005, Braverman reflected on the impact of the Biennale on her practice and the shaping of exhibitions and installations responding to global themes.

Interview with Julia Gamolina, Editor of MadameArchitect.org


July 8, 2020 Check out Louise’s interview with Julia Gamolina, editor of MamdameArchitect.org, about what it takes to create Architecture of Art + Conscience. Louise spoke about the positive aspects of defying the mainstream and engaging in entrepreneurship throughout her entire practice. Her empathetic attitude developed early on in architecture school where “...not being in the mainstream in my class, just by being a woman, was actually a very good learning experience! I realized what it was to not be in the mainstream, and it made me more empathetic to others.” She also reflected on how “Being positive and being different is an asset and allows you to work with different people towards a good result.” This attitude allows you to develop needed multi-tasking skills to propel your career.
