​Flavia Mazzanti (*1994) is an Italian Brazilian architect, artist and researcher based in Vienna, Austria. She recently graduated with distinction at the Academy of Fine Arts Vienna, after completing the Bachelor studies at the Academy of Architecture in Mendrisio (CH). Her Master Thesis project received the Gustav Peichl Award for architectural drawing and the Würdigungspreis for artistic work (2020).

Flavia’s research focuses on the entangled connection between the formation of hybrid spaces and the resulting social, political, and cultural relations, ranging from architectural theory to media art and experimental filmmaking.


Flavia was recently awarded with the Artist-in-Residence Program “Pixel, Bytes + Film” for media arts from ORF III - Kultur und Information (Austrian Broadcasting Corporation) and BMKÖS (the Federal Ministry for Arts, Culture, the Civil Service and Sport) for her hybrid short film "Sympoietic Bodies" (2020). Talks and exhibitions in Europe and North America.
