Joana Carvalho

founder and community manager
Viana do Castelo, Portugal
Joana Carvalho is a Viana local architect and co-founder of the creative hub DINAMO10. She started this community with the belief that interaction and sharing are key factors for creativity and success. Her internship for the Portuguese Architects Association took her to Olot, Spain for 2 years. After that, she worked as an architect in an ephemeral architecture studio and earned her master’s degree on Ephemeral Architecture in Barcelona. After 4 years in Catalonia she returned to her home town to work as a freelance architect and to create on of the first cowork spaces in Portugal, aiming to scale on impact rather than in size.
