One Community welcomes Sayonara Oliveira to the Architecture Team as our newest Partner/Consultant!
4th-year Architecture and Urban Planning Student: Sayonara is an undergraduate student enrolled in the Brazilian Scientific Mobility Program at Portland State University. In Brazil, she studies at Federal University of Campina Grande. Before starting college, Sayonara took classes to learn how to use AutoCAD, which gave to her a great amount of knowledge about the software. One year later, she had the opportunity to be a teaching assistant at her university where she offered support to other students that were gaining experience with AutoCAD. Always desiring to help, Sayonara participated as a volunteer in the organization of several events in her college. In addition, she was part of a scientific research group about the free spaces of her city, called “Free spaces in Campina Grande: a vista of the landscaping in the city.” Her passion for the environment related to architecture and urbanism became stronger during this research. Sayonara realized that the cities and buildings could act like great agents to modify the spaces and incorporate sustainability in the plans. Living and studying for almost 1 year in Portland, Oregon (one of the most sustainable cities in America) she took many classes related to environmental issues, and saw how great the benefits are for people when the spaces incorporate green infrastructure, and are planned with concern for nature. Sayonara desires to use her architecture and urban planning skills to build better spaces that improve quality of life while preserving the environment for future generations. As a member of the One Community team, Sayonara is helping with sustainable construction method research, design, drafting, and rendering for all seven of the sustainable village models.
