About 

I am Joana Bem-Haja, a portuguese architect.

I am a creative, dynamic and hard worker architect with more than 2 years of working experience. Since graduating from a Masters degree in Architecture at the University of Coimbra (2009), I have worked for two small offices at Coimbra, Portugal, where I had the opportunity of working in projects of various dimensions, from concept design through to construction documents. 

Simultaneously (2010-2011), I was the author of a house renovation at Curia, Portugal, which became my first constructed project.

Besides my professional experience, I have also been assisting in the development of independent art and performance projects, three of them included in the official program of the European Capital of Culture 2012, Guimarães, Portugal.
