Fabiana Casale


Fabiana has a particular interest in environmental issues and how design and policy can overlap, specifically in climate adaptation strategies and current energy industry on the American Landscape. She hails from Maracaibo, Venezuela, a coastal city that inspired her research and interest for empowering communities through resilient design. Fabiana holds both a BS and Master’s in architecture from Wentworth Institute of Technology and graduated from the Graduate School of Design at Harvard with an MLA and MDes in Risk and Resiliency. Having engaged with the indigenous communities around Maracaibo during her studies, she has also traveled to locations around the world including Zhiying, China and Sinamaica, Venezuela to further broaden her understanding of how communities adapt to their environmental conditions and what kinds of threats they can face in a changing climate. Fabiana is a former Reed Hilderbrand intern and joined full-time in 2022. She now contributes to institutional projects around the US. Outside of work, she loves to cook Italian cuisine, visit art museums, and play tennis.
