Trained as an Architect, Teresa Veiga de Macedo obtained her PhD from the Polytechnic University of Madrid, Spain, in strategies of (re)projecting the center of Lisbon. Her research proposes a methodology by which architectural intervention should integrate a city’s evolution, thus acknowledging that a city’s built heritage has significance for its future. Veiga de Macedo joined World Monuments Fund in December 2013 as a project manager at World Monuments Fund Portugal and has been responsible for implementing and coordinating projects, such as the Jerónimos Monastery Conservation Plan. Teresa also maintains a private architectural practice in Portugal.
