Claudia Sinatra is an architect, urban designer, and researcher currently based in Zürich.
She situates her work in the overlap of art, urbanism, and sociology, investigating territories from the lens of everyday interactions between people and places. In her approach, visual narratives and urban research are integrally connected to design, within the pursuit of a critical debate around communities and places.
Claudia currently teaches at the Swiss Institute of Technology in Zurich, while also practicing urban design and spatial planning. Parallel to this, she works on independent illustration and photography projects.
