Graduated at Universidade de São Paulo´s Law School (2007-2012), Vivian Legname Barbour is currently a master’s student at the USP ´s Faculty of Architecture and Urbanism, on the History and Fundaments of Architecture and Urbanism area, supported by a FAPESP scholarship (Fundação de Apoio à Pesquisa do Estado de São Paulo). She worked at Vila Itororó (2008-2009) through an extension project called Serviço de Assessoria Jurídica Universitária, which developed land regularization and dynamics based on popular education methods. Its purpose was to help Vila Itororó´s dwellers to articulate themselves towards their fight for housing rights in a heritage.  She also worked as a heritage educator at Casa Modernista, Brazil´s first modernist building (2013-2014), where she developed the “Memória Presente – Construindo um arquivo modernista” [Present memory – Building a modernist archive] project, in which heritage´s values were built from oral history dynamics. This experience resulted on a paper called “Recreating spaces through narratives: the strength of mediation process on building new meanings to cultural heritage”, which was presented at the International Conference of the Art-education Federation (2014). She presented partial results of her current research at the 11th International Conference for Young Heritage Researchers, with the paper "Dilemmas of living: Vila Itororó between heritage and function (1975-2013)". She is a recent member of the Association of Critical Heritage Studies – ACHS (2015).
