Born in Milan and educated at The University of Venice, Tagliabue has been Principal of EMBT (the studio Enric Miralles Benedetta Tagliabue) since 2000. Under her direction, the studio's architectural philosophy is dedicating special attention to context.
In 2004 she received an Honorary Doctor of Arts degree from Napier University and in 2005 won the prestigious Stirling Prize for the Scottish Parliament Building, completed in 2004. Tagliabue is currently building the Spanish Pavilion for the 2010 Shanghai Expo, which won the 2009 Future Project of the Year Award at the World Architecture Festival. In February 2010, she will be awarded a RIBA International Fellowship for her particular contribution to architecture by a non-UK architect.
