Carlotta  Novella


I am an Italian architect and artist based in London, working with the no profit art and architecture practice public works.

My work addresses contemporary socio-political and cultural issues through a spatial lens, focusing on the interplay of use within and between private and public spaces. A great believer in collaborative work and making, my projects include temporary, socio-spatial and mobile structures, architectural drawings, participatory workshops, events and performances. I am currently working with local organisations and communities in London to support the development of R-Urban Poplar, a project which offers small workshop and meeting spaces and regular free workshops to learn about the re-use of materials and surplus food, together with teaching environmentally friendly approaches and sustainable energy and knowledge production.

I regularly lecture and tutor in London and at Umeå School of Architecture in Sweden.
