Giulia Foscari

Giulia Foscari is an architect, curator and author who has been practising in Asia, South America and Europe. She is the founder of UNA, a Hamburg-based international architecture practice focussed on cultural projects; founder of UNLESS, a non-for-profit platform dedicated to research on the effects of the Anthropocene; and partner of Foscari Widmann Rezzonico Associati, an architecture practice based in Venice. Her working experience includes an extensive collaboration with OMA (Office for Metropolitan Architecture) which started in Hong Kong in 2009 and led her to run OMA’s South American platform. In parallel to practicing architecture, Giulia Foscari worked on multiple curatorial projects (including exhibitions in four editions of the Venice Biennale) and is engaged in academia. She taught at Hong Kong University for five academic years, and ran a Diploma Unit at the Architectural Association (between 2015 and 2018) where she now directs the Polar Lab. In 2014 Giulia Foscari authored Elements of Venice, a book published by Lars Müller Publishers which was awarded the DAM Architectural Book Award.
