Biography

Carolina was born in Caracas, Venezuela. She graduated as an Architect at the Universidad Central de Venezuela and has been recognized around the world because of her multidisciplinary projects.

 

Since her early professional years in Caracas,  Carolina’s skillfulness has brought her to experiment in different areas by blending architecture, design, education and arts. Carolina has a unique style of design, a playful methodology that co-exists with her relentless search for the transformation of the “ugly into beautiful” and “useless into useful”. Social impact and the re-use of materials (upcycling) have always been the core of her career.

 

Carolina is an insatiable promoter and communicator of original and collective ideas through effective means. She has not only participated but also worked as the curator of several contemporary architectural, design and artistic exhibitions.

 

In 2014, Carolina moved to Paris. Her work was labeled on the same year as an “ethical dimension of design” at the first US group exhibition for Latin American design “New Territories: Laboratories for Design, Craft and Art in Latin America” (MAD Museum of Arts & Design; New York).

 

In 2017, Carolina was the curator of the successful exhibition Nouvelles Vies (VIA; Paris) and chosen to be part of the international committee for the touring exhibition of "Le French Design" by VIA.

 

Today, Carolina is developing different Eco-Social projects among them she has associated with the social design enterprise, TOUCH (Los Ángeles), that works with collaborators and partners around the world to accelerate positive change by designing products and implementing services, following the principals of sustainability and focusing on the collective.
