This Week's Speaker: Felipe Nakamura Bassani, GSRP Student from Brazil

Felipe Nakamura Bassani was born in Campo Mourão, Brazil, in 1995. He started his degree in Architecture and Urban Planning at the State University of Maringá, in 2014. In the same year, he joined the research office for human settlements and traditional construction (Lapha). For that reason,

Felipe has participated in several competitions, obtaining positive results, with the first place in 4 of these and an honorable mention. The last contest was held to celebrate the 150-year celebration of the famous American architect Frank Lloyd Wright. With this victory, Felipe’s group will represent his home country at the ceremony.

Son of Carlos Roberto Bassani, a businessman in the field of the optical lens and jewelry and Natalina Nakamura Bassani, a retired bank manager and the founding member of the Rotary Club Raio de Luz, Felipe has participated in some volunteer work and community leadership roles.

He’s passionate about the arts, music, and film. His willingness to travel and learn different cultures will be maximized by the GRSP’s opportunities and connections and will lead him to both personal and professional growth.

His greatest dream is to continue to accomplish all he can for the greater good of helping those in need. After all, one way to make a true impact for others is to live out the term, service above self.
