Gemma is an architect and visual artist from Barcelona currently based in New York. Her work is a combination of her passion for sculpture and architecture and she is simultaneously exploring and expressing herself in both mediums as well as Visual Arts.
In 2013 she moved to New York to study a Master in Architecture Design at Columbia University. She had Jing Liu, Bernard Tschumi and Steven Holl as studio professors. She is part of the Columbia Artist Society and illustrated many Columbia Magazines and News Papers (including The Fed, The Science Review, The Economic Review and The Push amongst others)
In 2014, immediately upon graduation, Gemma joined Steven Holl Architects where she worked in large projects like the SHAN-SHUI HANGZHOU, a mixed media and urban planning project, in medium to large projects, like the THE JOHN F. KENNEDY CENTER FOR THE PERFORMING ARTS EXPANSION in Washington and the NEW DOCTORATE’S BUILDING NATIONAL UNIVERSITY OF COLOMBIA and small projects like MAGGIE’S CENTRE BARTS in London.
She has maintained an independent career as an award winning painter and published illustrator. In 2014 she made an art installation called Noodloo that was shown in three different exhibitions including the Figment art festival. Her sculpture work shares her architecture language and it is a study of volume and geometry using stone, concrete, 3d print and metal. In her sculptures she studies the relationship of volume and space that objects with similar forms but different language have. She also uses street art as a tool to make art accessible and architecture collective.
She previously obtained her degree in architecture at La Salle University in Barcelona, Spain. She has expanded her education in Architecture and Fine Art at Escola da Cidade and MuBE (Museu Brasileiro da Escultura), São Paulo, Brazil and University of California Berkeley.
