In her work as architect and urbanist, French-Brazilian Elizabeth de Portzamparc designs buildings to serve as architectural symbols that are supporting what her practice sees as new values and as powerful urban landmarks that skilfully structure and inhabit the places where they are built. Applying her thinking and experience on the identity of cities and metropolises, de Portzamparc designs facilities that strengthen the qualities of the context into which they are inserted. With a sober, light, and streamlined architecture, based on the lightening of masses and on the economy of forms and materials, privileging the use of spaces with double exposure and a strong relation with nature, they create an atmosphere, conveying easily identifiable collective values and open dialog with the urban surroundings.
