Clara is a multi-disciplinary professional with an architectural background who lives and works near Barcelona, Spain. She devoted herself to photography exploring analog and digital techniques since the age of 13.

Her field of experience is around rural and bio-climatic cohousing solutions in traditional and abandoned buildings. She develops it from three different perspectives: as Entrepreneur building a web-app to connect the different agents involved in rural cohousing processes (Masies x Viure); as an Architect, collaborating and assessing arch studios and/or groups; as an Architecture Photographer, in order to promote case studies, design and educate on housing alternatives.

She studied Architecture and Urbanism at the University of Girona (2016), did her exchange year at the University of la Sapienza, Roma (2014), studied Architecture and Interior Design Photography at the Institute of Photography Studies of Catalonia (IEFC, 2015), and formed herself in Business Development and Communication (2019-2021).

Her work has been commissioned by architecture and design studios, cultural institutions, magazines, and NGOs.

Clara’s personal visual research focuses on the observation of the urbanscape, its transformations, and the relationship that buildings establish with their context -the public space and its users. She uses an analytical, paused, and critical gaze to show a comprehensive dialogue with the city. In order to help acquire consciousness about the space. Since urbanism, architecture, and its transformations are a metaphor of society and ourselves.
