Architect JOANA TCHING ANDRADE
Born in Lisbon in 1983, she graduated in Architecture in 2006 from the Technical University of Lisbon and has a PhD in Computational Technologies connected to Architecture from ISCTE-IUL. With a path that varies between the areas of Architecture, Design, Training and Research, she has been practicing architecture since 2007, individually and in collaboration with architectural offices in Portugal, United Kingdom, Belgium, Australia and the U.S.A. - New York and San Francisco mainly. She is a member of the Board of Architects in Portugal (Ordem dos Arquitetos) and in the UK (Architects Registration Board). These collaborations have helped her to achieve a broad view of building processes and design options, especially for residential and retail spaces. With 8 years of experience in project coordination and 4 years of experience in the remote direction of a team of twenty nine designers around the world, she founded AJA and is the coordinating manager and architect, working with multidisciplinary teams.
AJA develops BIM (Building Information Modeling) projects, working with partners in Engineering and Construction who believe, like us, that technology is a precious ally for the development of works with the minimum of errors and omissions.
We work with designer's teams from all over the world, sharing different experiences and knowledge.
As specialists and defenders for sustainable projects, we also collaborate with brands and suppliers that present the best solutions in this area.
We believe that the AEC (Architecture, Engineering and Construction) area plays an essential role, so AJA aims to offer the Client the best of the three areas, coordinating them for an exceptional end result.
