關於

身在虛擬當道的數位化時代,有著跨文化背景、經驗豐富的Cecilia Tham是位貨真價實的「手作者」,她「左右腦併用」的絕活是引領她邁向成功之路的祕­密武器。Cecilia在香港出生、赴美受教育的背景和經驗更是滋養她為理念而行的養­分;Cecilia在先後取得生物學及哈佛大學建築碩士學位後了解到「藝術和設計」才­是她的真愛,衷於自己內心的她隨即飛往歐洲,迎接未知的挑戰。

2010年11月,Cecilia公開號召全巴塞隆納的創意工作者,呼籲大家團結起來­,共同改善眼前創意貧乏的環境,她希望透過行動,幫創意人找回一片天。2年後,Cec­ilia的MOB成功成為創意人和重量級企業家眼中的夢幻天堂。


Cecilia Tham is a true MAKER in the digital age. With a multi-cultural background and a wide span of experiences and skills, Cecilia has the rare ability to use both the right and left brain when attacking a new project. Blessed with the innate ability to follow her bliss, Cecilia draws from a wealth of know-how thanks to her upbringing in Hong Kong, her education in the US and her experience building a collaborative community in the heart of Barcelona, aptly named: Makers of Barcelona (MOB). Having studied first biology and later received her Master in Architecture from Harvard University, she unexpectedly found her true passion in Art and Design and then decided to move to Europe to find new challenges.

In November of 2010, Cecilia went to her rooftop and called out to all of the creative folks in Barcelona. She invited everyone: from programmers to design junkies, from entrepreneurs to makers- she envisioned them all coming together to unite against the crisis, the lackluster projects, the bad networking events. She wanted to help them find their own space, even if they had to make it from scratch. Two years later –Cecilia’s vision has now successfully become MAKERS OF BARCELONA a collaborative community and facility for the innovative hipsters, the creative geeks and the business-savvy movers and shakers that call Barcelona home.

When she’s not busy helping connect people inside the creative community or pushing the city to promote the creative district in Barcelona- you can find her designing a building at Habitan Architects where she is also a partner, or simply making a new stuffed animal for her daughters.
