MAPA Architects it’s a binational collective that works on architectural projects in Brazil and Uruguay. From this double geographical condition, MAPA explores the limits of non-conventional production formats. The studio has originally established itself from professional and academic grounds: two complementary fields that create and shape our work.
STUDIOPARALELO and MAAM ARQUITECTOS were born during the first century’s decade as independent architectural studios. In 2008 they started sharing works and competitions, such as expositions and conferences. After five years working together, both studios merged in one, establishing in Porto Alegre, Brazil and Montevideo, Uruguay.
MAPA is integrated by Luciano Andrades, Matías Carballal, Rochelle Castro, Andrés Gobba, Mauricio López, Silvio Machado. The group of architects and collaborators are: Alexis Arbelo, Pablo Courreges, Camilla Pereira, Diego Morera, Isabella Madureira, Aldo Lanzi, Emiliano Lago y Mauricio Muller.
