Born in 1988 in Lima/Peru.
Nicolas Rivera Bianchi is an architect based in Lima/Peru. He received his bachelor’s degree in architecture and urbanism from the Pontificia Universidad Católica del Perú, Lima. He has had a broad experience in design offices in Lima before opening, together with Mariana Jochamowitz, the design studio Jochamowitz Rivera Arquitectos in 2015.
Jochamowitz Rivera Arquitectos has designed and built eight projects between 2015 and 2017. The architecture office is concerned with design and research projects involving domestic and landscape architecture. One of the studio’s main projects is the research, design and landscape planning for the marine natural protected area Punta San Juan Program, at the southern coast of Peru.
For this project, the office formed multidisciplinary work teams as it involved not only architecture design but ecosystem conservation strategies, sustainable tourism projects, fundraising, and public consultation with the local communities. As part of this large-scale ongoing project, a Seacoast Observatory was built in 2015. This building earned Jochamowitz Rivera Arquitectos a nomination for the Mies Crown Americas Prize 2014/2015 by the College of Architecture at the Illinois Institute of Technology, Chicago, IL/USA in the category Emerging Architecture. This work has been published in the architecture journal, Arkinka in 2016.
