LLAQTA is the research and design studio formed by Beatriz Pero Giannini to explore the collision of the urban and human scales.

The studio is critically interested in the socio-cultural implications of design and how it produces meaning in everyday life, and committed to challenging established conceptions and norms to generate positive change through design and research.

Beatriz is a Peruvian-Italian architect, researcher, and designer based in Rotterdam (NL).  She graduated cum laude from the Piet Zwart Institute, Master Interior Architecture: Research + Design in 2019 in Rotterdam, and in the top 10% of her class at Universidad Peruana de Ciencias Aplicadas, Lima (PE). She is a collaborator of Goodmesh.
