about me

My interest in Architecture goes back to my childhood, coming first as a kid game and then becoming step by step a curiosity. This curiosity guided me to a technical course during high school and after that, to one of the most known architecture schools in South America.

to study these subjects. Before finishing my degree, I also did extracurricular courses about architecture presentation and carpentry.

During university, I had the opportunity to experience a variety of fields related to architecture and design and, as a result, I collaborated in different projects that were meaningful for my development as an architect, but mainly as researcher and experimenter. Among these projects, it seems important to highlight the elaboration of research about gender issues faced by the homeless population in São Paulo’s urban space, and my undergraduate thesis, in which I decided to study my childhood home - a house based in a lower class neighboorhood built by my family without technical assistance - under three different perspectives: the planner’s perspective, the architect’s perspective, and the resident’s perspective.

During my last year at University, I decided to combine studies with practise, seeking to learn by experience in architecture companies. Working as an intern allowed me to deal with the different activities involved in the development of a variety of projects, paying attention to the building code for construction and other important aspects, as accessibility regulations. I got experience producing technical drawings and also understanding the process involved in the design development. This period showed me that I am a fast learner, an active and eager person at work, who always tries the best of herself, can adapt to different tasks in groups or by herself and is also quite attentive to details. I learnt to value organisation, responsibility, and teamwork. I appreciate creative and have a special interest in visual arts.

My collaboration in those projects was meaningful to put me in contact with complex situations in which it was necessary analysing data to deliver results. It taught me how to deal with workload and deadlines, organisation and to deliver satisfactory outcomes. Carpentry, furniture design and graphic design were some of my interests during college as well, so I used part of my elective hours to get involved in projects

I moved to Sydney just after finishing my degree with only my academic and internship experiences. Now, after a period of getting used to the city and setting up my life, I am looking forward to increasing my knowledge and professional performance through challenging experiences. As my experience speaks for itself, I am open-minded to new knowledge and always open to trying new things!

tamanduateí residential design by Jessica Silverio, Mariana Gonçalves and Debora Nojiri, advisor: Alvaro Puntoni (Grupo SP Arquitetos)

“The urban rivers, as waterways of communication, receive the intensity of life and public space, place of meetings, interaction, design. Place of being, living. Fluvial house-city, port and park.” (Professor Alexandre Delijaicov in his master thesis The river and the city design, 1998, free translation)

The Tamanduateí Residential project is part of an urban plan designed by Professor Dr Alexandre Delijaicov and his lab at FAUUSP. The plan, entitled Urban Riverside of Tamanduateí, creates a huge allotment alongside the Tamanduateí River, which would belong to a complex waterway system in São Paulo. The allotment, proposed in the Mooca neighbourhood, aims at an intense connection between the city and the Tamanduateí River and its minor watercourses, which could be used as transportation or as a leisure place. The project, as a mixed-use social housing, attempt to consider all of the plural ways of living from people that might use this space . Furthermore, it also attempts to create a strong relationship between the streets and the public space around. From the beginning,

2016

the priority was the permeability in the ground, which consists of stores and service shops, to invite the pedestrians to come in. The buildings were put in a way that it enables walking through the block starting from any side, without interrupting people’s flow. The building’s arrangement creates two courtyards, which can be used for different activities, even just cross through. But more than that, the idea was to create a permanence place, not only for the residents but for the passersby as well. Also to this end, the marquee acts as a cover construction, creating shadow, and an overlook to the surrounding area (for example, the Tamanduateí river across the southwest street). The residential complex designed on the large 80x80 meters block finishes drawing the limits of the block, sometimes as a building, sometimes as a mezzanine and walkway to access the units, sometimes just as a gap between the buildings. Thus, the residents’ privacy is respected, there is space for the units environmental comfort and, finally, stands as part of city public space.

The roof waterproofing and garden design was based in a solution developed by Brasil Arquitetura, a famous architecture company from SĂŁo Paulo. Basically, the waterproofing happens trough keeping the concrete slab saturated with water since the concreting process starts. Whereas the slab remains constantly filled, this decreases the temperature variations in the structural part, which are the principal reason for cracks and infiltrations, so that there are no more leaking.

cultural house designed by Jessica Silverio, 2017 advisor: Cesar Shundi (SIAA Arquitetos)

The Cultural House is a municipal public facility that offers a variety of spaces for artist collectives selected by the city council. The project idea is to help artists with a low social economic status with spaces to practice, to study, to develop their roles and to present it for people around the city. Thus it becomes possible to help these artists to develop their careers and, at the same time, to deliver culture for people around all the city - since the Cultural House project would exist in each neighbourhood around the whole municipality. So, for this project, I knew it needed to be a place that invites people who are not used to visit cultural spaces to go there and also it needed to support different kinds of collectives - music, dance, visual arts, etc - and all kind of people as well - they could be young, elderly, even children. The site for the building is just in front of a big square in Sao Paulo, quite known for being a meeting place for different groups of people. My project takes it as a guide to the building shape, which has a glass wall that faces indirectly the square and invites people to explore its interior and its activities, also serving as the main source of natural light. On the other hand, the other building’s sides are made of fair-faced concrete without almost any opening, only a gap in each building’s corner, because it is necessary for artists in training to keep their attention without any distraction that busy cities usually have. About the internal spaces, they followed a simple logic: on the left side was the service tower, where all offices, toilets,

changing rooms and storage rooms were put. Each floor also had an open room that could be a space to socialize during breaks, but also could be a place to collective meetings. All of the flow of people between floors happens on the service tower as well, through lifts and enclosed stairs. The service tower is separated from the activities floors by an open terrace in each floor, whereby is done the access to the activities rooms, that way people can go in and outside without even leaving the building. The activities rooms are on all floors with exception of the ground floor and its mezzanine - where it is a cafe. The ground floor was thought to be a place where anyone could use for any kind of activity, even pedestrians. The exhibition room is in the basement, where the area could be larger and without any kind of external interference as well. Although it is a single room, partition walls with different sizes and height were designed to help to host the different possible exhibitions, so that each collective could design the interior on their own. The exhibition room also has a double-height ceiling, so that it offers to the collectives a space easily adaptable for a variety of installations. All decisions were made thinking about who was going to be the users and what were their main needs. In this situation, the design would have to suit different requirements, whereas it was not known which collectives would attend it.

homelessness and gender issues undergraduate research by Jessica Silverio, 2018 advisor: Professor Maria Cecilia Loschiavo

The research attempted to collect literature and iconography produced around the themes in question – homeless population, LGBTQ+ homeless population, homeless women, gender violence, gender and the urban space. This material was studied and had its data was analyzed with the intent of obtaining a direct view on this population from the perspective of architecture and urbanism. The second half of the research tried going deeper on the questions related to gender and the urban space and looked closer at the study group through accounts from the “SP Invisível” collective. The method used for qualitative analysis of the material was that of Data Categorization. The categories were constructed throughout the analysis process. The method consisted in: 1. Preparing the information (reading the collected bibliography and iconography, separating the citations and picking keywords) 2. Content Unitarization or transforming the content in units (creating analysis units according to the theme of the documents) 3. Categorization or classifying these units into

categories (reorganizing and grouping units/ data depending on what they have in common) 4. Description 5. Interpretation. The theoretical analysis of the selected bibliography and iconography resulted in four developments of the thematic. The first concerns the dimensions of homelessness and the urbanization process that crippled part of the population and deprived it from its right to the city. The second discusses the historical context that made gender inequality and its direct results, such as domestic violence and the relationship between gender and the urban space. The third continues the homelessness and gender thematic, with a focus on the transsexual population. Finally, the population studied is exposed through accounts, attempting to personify and humanize the conducted academic research. As part of the conclusion, it is understood that exposing the particularities around gender issues faced by the homeless population is crucial for making an inclusive urban space that embraces all of its citizens’ individualities, building cities to which all have access.
