Joined studioWTA in 2014

Natan grew up firmly rooted between the grand narrative traditions of the East Tennessee Smoky Mountains and the great modernist experiment of Brasilia, the capital city of Brazil. With an installation artist mother and historian father, it is no wonder that he eventually found himself in architecture. Natan is proud to call New Orleans home, and honored to work at the nexus of history, culture, concept, and detail at studioWTA.

Originally trained as a cultural anthropologist with a thesis in anthropology of architecture and aesthetics, Natan joined studioWTA in the summer of 2014 upon completion of the M.Arch I Graduate Professional Degree Masters program from Tulane School of Architecture, where he acted as a teaching assistant for first year undergraduate studios as well as advanced architectural theory and history electives.

At Tulane, Natan was awarded the 2014 AIA Certificate of Merit upon graduation, the 2013 comprehensive studio Dean’s award for excellence, and the 2012 Sizeler Public Service Fellowship, and distinguished himself through his work at the intersection of public interest design, architectural theory, politics and culture. His work has been shown at the Buenos Aires International Biennial of Architecture, as well as the 2014 Biennale Architettura di Venezia.
