graduated from the faculdade de arquitectura da faculdade técnica de lisboa [1998] and master from the universidad politécnica da catalunya [2000], carlos sant'ana divides his activity bettwen these two cities, where he has developed his expertise on questions of large scale work, environmental issues and the new tools of architectural design in the course of its academic and professional activity. in barcelona, carlos sant'ana had the opportunity to work with the actar arquitectura team. as they do, he also likes to think of himself as an "actor of architecture", a producer of projects, books and exhibitions. concerned to "re-democratize" architecture by linking it and making it responsive to the local-global flow, he readily explores themes of flexibility, mobility and ecology.
