WUDA* is a young cross-cultural architecture practice founded by Inês Dantas and Florian Wurfbaum. WUDA* ‘s work covers design-projects, research and consulting activities within interdisciplinary strategies and international teams, establishing diverse partnerships and collaborations. At the current time WUDA * has on-going projects in Portugal, in Germany and in the United Kingdom. * WUDA benefits from the diverse cultural approaches to architecture from its founding partners and collaborators. Architecture is both a catalyst and an interface with other disciplines at different scales translating these in spatial, tectonic and territorial strategies.
Projects delve a spatial culture that integrates urban, technological, socio-cultural arguments with their inherent changes of paradigm. * WUDA has been awarded prizes in international competitions (Austrian Pavilion for the Expo 2010 in Shanghai, Tejo River Banks in Portugal). * WUDA’s work has gained recognition prizes and nominations in Germany and has been published and exhibited throughout Europe.
Inês Dantas is a Portuguese-born architect , co-founder of the practice *WUDA (Munich-London) together with Florian Wurfbaum.

Inês has taught and lectured in several institutions (University of Innsbruck, Milan Politecnico, University of Brighton, Architectural Association Visiting School Singapore, Rizvi College of Architecture Mumbai) and is pursuing a PhD by Design at the Bartlett School of Architecture funded by the Fundacao da Ciencia e Tecnologia.
