Cláudia explores aural architecture and energetic geometry as tools to foster an integral education, consciousness transformation and ecological ways of living. She is co-creating architecture as a communication channel, in which the language of vibration and geometry are used to resonate and attune with self, others, the surrounding place, the spacetime continuum and the universe. Her practice intersects bio architecture, acoustic ecology, psychoacoustics, archaeoacoustics, traditional feng shui and sound therapy. Cláudia develops collective dynamics through workshops of universal geometry, bio-construction, soundwalks, field recording, soundscape performance and installations, experience of sites’ energy and geometry, circles of musical improvisation and dance.
