Silvia Benedito

Silvia Benedito is a registered architect, urban designer and associate professor of landscape architecture at the Graduate School of Design (GSD), Harvard University. She focuses her design and research efforts on the quality of the constructed environment in its capacity to foster communal well-being and ecological resilience. In her work, Benedito advocates for a vigorous disciplinary intersection of architecture and landscape architecture at the different scales of the territory: from the residential compound to the neighborhood, from the city to the countryside. She is the co-principal of OFICINAA, an international award-winning architecture, landscape and urban design practice based in Cambridge, Massachusetts and Ingolstadt, Germany.
