Lorí Crízel graduated in Architecture and Urbanism from the Catholic University of Rio Grande do Sul in 1999, becoming the first and only architect in the Crízel family (up to the present moment!). As an undergraduate student, he realized he had a vocation to share knowledge, thus choosing to go after a master’s degree straight after graduating. And so he did. He holds a master’s in Environmental Comfort from the Federal University of Rio de Janeiro – UFRJ.
Since then, he signed projects on the Rio-São Paulo axis before leaving for Europe and Asia in search of worldwide references to add value to his professional performance. Returning to Brazil, he started his academic journey as a university and graduate professor, as well as investing in the opening of his office Crízel & Uren Arquitetos Associados. Due to his directionality towards other markets and operations, in 2019 he founded the Lorí Crízel + Partners office, where he develops projects in collaborative partnerships in the areas of Architecture, Interiors, Lighting, among others.
