Edgalia will receive her Master of Architecture from Universidad Simon Bolivar in Caracas,
Venezuela in 2014. From 2011 to 2012, she explored at the Czech Technincal University in
Prague the possibilities for adaptive re-use around former industrial areas in floodable cities.
In 2013 she worked in the digital crafting of ideas workshop in MedioDesign, in Barcelona,
Spain. She contributed as a social worker by designing public spaces inside the biggest slum
of South America, Petare in collaboration with the office of the mayor of Sucre, and was
published in the book 'Intervention on Public Spaces Inside Slums Around Sucre Municipality'.
At Terreform ONE, she explored the social, economic, and ecological possibilities of urban
transformation set in the context of severe climate dynamism. She designed solutions to
alleviate storm impact through various urban interventions that re-purposed spaces towards
environmental adaptation, putting design to the service of the communities of Midland Beach
and Ocean Breeze in Staten Island, New York.
