Valentina Angelucci

2022 Summer Fellow
Valentina Angelucci is a New York based architectural designer, originally from Johannesburg, South Africa. She graduated from Columbia University in 2019 with a dual Master’s in Architecture and Historic Preservation. Since then, she has worked at various firms on medium to large scale public buildings, most notably a branch of the Brooklyn Public Library, and a whiskey distillery located in Yunan, China. Valentina’s personal work and research is centered around the tactile and sensory, exploring different processes to alter and manipulate materials into immersive objects and spaces that aim to evoke a sense of wonder and whimsy. Slow, repetitive processes are integral to her methods of production, imbuing the works with an element of time, aging and introspection, as well as encouraging community involvement. Valentina was a recipient of the William Kinne Fellows Traveling Prize in 2019 for her proposal titled “Landscapes of Extraction: Johannesburg and Nord-Pas de Calais”, and was a finalist in the 2018 PPC Imaginarium Awards in the Fashion Design category for her work titled “Soft Armor”. In 2016 her collection of works, titled Micrometros, was exhibited in Johannesburg’s Turbine Art Fair.
