A graduate from the National University of Rosario in Argentina in 1998 and from Columbia University in 2001, Florencia Pita worked alongside such architects as Greg Lynn, Peter Eisenman, and Asymptote, before founding her own design office in 2005. The architect aims to reconcile architecture with varying scales and with our everyday rituals. According to Pita, architecture must find its fulfilment through the ordinariness of the most basic tastes in their purest state and through diverse and eccentric styles, notably by way of meticulous work on colour. Her projects are part of several collections (MoMA, MAK Vienna, Art Institute of Chicago). She currently teaches at SCI-Arc.
