Born in 1968 in France. Works between Paris (France) and Lisboa (Portugal).


Didier Fiúza Faustino works on the relationship between body and space. He started his own practice at the crossroad of art and architecture just after graduating in architecture in 1995. He has been developing since then a multi-faceted approach, ranging from installation to experimentation, from visual art to the creation of multi-sensorial spaces, mobile architecture and buildings. He taught for six years at the AA School in London and was editor-in-chief of the French architecture and design magazine CREE in 2015 and 2016.
