Architect, editor, and curator Giovanna Borasi joined the Canadian Centre for Architecture [CCA] in 2005, first as Curator of Contemporary Architecture [2005-10], then as Chief Curator [2014-19]. She has been the Director of the CCA since 2020.

Borasi’s work explores alternative ways of practicing and evaluating architecture, considering the impact of contemporary environmental, political and social issues on urbanism and the built environment. She studied architecture at the Politecnico di Milano, worked as an editor of Lotus International [1998–2005] and Lotus Navigator [2000–2004] and was Deputy Editor in Chief of Abitare [2011–2013].
