Perfil

El Estudio America ha nacido en agosto de 2007, cuando los arquitectos brasileños Carlos Dias, Lucas Fehr y Mario Figueroa ganan el concurso internacional para el Centro Matucana y Museo de La Memoria en Santiago de Chile, invitando como asociado el arquitecto chileno Roberto Ibieta para desarrollo del proyecto. En medio de 2008, Carlos Eduardo Garcia y Marcus Vinicius Damon, que han participado de todo el proceso desde el Concurso, se gradan arquitectos y se quedan asociados. La actual formación se completa en 2009 con Guilherme Motta. Con esta estructura y una red de colaboradores brasileños y extranjeros, el EA obtuve resultados importantes en concursos en el año que pasó: mención en el Parque Cultural de Valparaíso (Chile), segundo premio en Praça de Natal, en Natal (nordeste de Brasil) y ha sido logrado con el primero premio en los concursos para el Complexo Hotel Paineiras en Rio de Janeiro y para la Recualificación y Ampliación del Teatro Castro Alves, en Salvador.
