Aldana Ferrer Garcia is an architectural graduate from the University of Buenos Aires, Argentina. She subsequently achieved her Masters Degree in Industrial Design at Pratt Institute. While practising as an architect in Argentina she also taught the theory of architecture and became concerned about the lack of human scale in architecture in some cases and she became involved with industrial design. Her Master’s thesis MoreSky is indicative of her passion for industrial design.
She was one of the pioneers participating in the Global Innovation Design program, an academic collaboration between Pratt Institute, Royal College of Art London, Imperial College London and Keio University in Tokyo. Her work there was featured in the KMD Forum on 2013 and 2014.
She is also passionate about cross-cultural design collaborations with local artisans around the world. She participated in projects such as The Malinalco Project in Mexico and The Antigua Project in Guatemala and she is committed to encouraging a dialogue between artisanal technique and design.
These are some of her MoreSky innovative window designs which formed part of her Masters thesis and which would be ideally suited for high-rise buildings etc.
Aldana is seeking investors and partners in engineering, manufacturing and distribution in order to further the development of her clever and interesting architectural window design.
Pratt Institute was founded in 1887 and is a global leader in higher education dedicated to tutoring its 4,600 undergraduate and graduate students in design, architecture, information and library science, and liberal arts and sciences.
