Afra Rebuscini is an architect and independent art curator based in Sài Gòn, Vietnam. She holds a Bachelor of Science in Architecture from the Polytechnic University of Milan and a Master of Arts in Curating Contemporary Art from the Royal College of Art, London.

In 2021, she co-founded Officine Gặp, an interdisciplinary and research-led firm based in HCMC and dedicated to working with cultural institutions, policy-makers, architects, artists, and city planners to develop and improve the cultural framework of Southeast Asian cities.

Her research and practice interests lie at the intersection of art, architecture, design, urban studies, and sustainable development. Key research interests include the use of neglected urban spaces in contemporary cities, the social use of urban spaces, the politics of the city and the ways culture and art can shape public life and contribute to heritage management and city development.

In her work as a curator, she focuses on how city-makers and art practitioners can collaborate to improve the cultural and social life of cities as well as the exploration of community planning and sustainable urbanism through public architecture.

Currently, her work at Officine Gặp focuses on developing and implementing culture-led strategies with the aim to integrate cultural assets into traditional urban planning and placemaking.
