AtmosLab (Olivier Dambron, Rafael Alonso Candau and Florencia Collo) is in charge of the technical studies of the M.A. Environmental Architecture. One of us goes on Mondays to provide the technical workshops.
Born in Buenos Aires, in 1988, Florencia graduated as an Architect at the Facultad de Arquitectura, Diseño y Urbanismo of the University of Buenos Aires (FADU-UBA), where she was a tutor of History and Urban Planning. In 2016, she completed the Msc Sustainable Environmental Design at the Architectural Association School of Architecture, under the direction of Simos Yannas. In 2016, she co-founded Atmos lab with Rafael Alonso Candau and Olivier Dambron, an agency of environmental design consultancy for architecture. Inside Atmos lab, Florencia is project manager, and carries out several research projects about Argentinean architecture and about contemporary practices. In 2018, she was invited to be a permanent member of the international organisation of Passive Low Energy Architecture.

In a context where human impact is leaving a costly imprint on its homeland, Atmos Lab helps architecture face the environmental challenges of our time with built-in common sense.
Playing with temperature, sunlight or wind, we provide architects a climate-responsive frame of mind, and healthier solutions to build with: more efficient, more comfortable, more sustainable.
With new tools for calculation and new angles for interpretation, we reinvent the dialog between engineering and architecture.
Atmos Lab always seeks the fairest solution, the clearest course of action, and the most direct way to report its work.
We care for simple answers, we stand up to simplistic views.
