Interview with Ana Torrão

We believe that the History of Women in Architecture is also made up of those who entered the course and who, for different reasons, did not finish it. These narratives are significant in the construction of a broader disciplinary framework because they bring experiences that are often not considered. Today we interviewed Ana Torrão, who, in the early 1980s, studied at ESBAP and then ESBAL schools and who, for personal reasons, did not finish graduation. We hear about her personal and academic path and motivations.

We thank Ana for her availability. We hope to meet soon!
