Stephanie Lama was born in La Paz Bolivia and trained as a dancer, an architect and a movement. The core of her work focusses on the interrelations of the creative practice between architecture, dance making and therapy. Her work experience fluctuates between the realization of buildings, research, dance making, development of concepts, teaching and facilitation of therapeutic change through movement.
During her collaboration for several years with Professor Herman Hertzberger she has been engaged in the publication of books and exhibitions next to the building process of theater and school buildings. She participated in design of The Tivoli Vredenburg, a contemporary music complex located in Utrecht that consists of five halls designed acoustically for a specific music genre. Currently she is involved in the project OCC - Onderwijs- en Cultuurcentrum in The Hague, where the Royal Conservatory of The Hague, the Nederlands Dans Theater and the Residentie Orkest come together in one cultural building.
After being classically trained as a pianist and composer in Poland and Russia from the age of five, he studied architecture in Poland and Germany and completed his masters degree at the Amsterdam Academy of Architecture, The Netherlands. Since then he gained his professional experience with well regarded architectural practices including OMA/Rem Koolhaas, UNStudio, NL Architects and Herman Hertzberger.
