Born in São Paulo, Amanda Ferber graduated from the school of Architecture and Urbanism of Mackenzie Presbyterian University in 2018. Realizing that she had an extensive collection of architectural reference work on her phone (that was created as a means to study for college) she decided, unpretentiously, to open an Instagram page to share its curation in the year of 2013, named Architecture Hunter.
During her academic life, Amanda interned at studioMK27, led by renowned Brazilian architect, Marcio Kogan. Halfway through college, she realized that her passion leant towards architectural communication, and not necessarily to actually design. Thus, she started an internship at ArchDaily, where she worked for two years in total.

After finishing her academic studies, Amanda began to focus on turning the brand into a business.

In the same year, Amanda was invited to speak at the “Viral Voices” panel for the American Institute of Architecture in New York.

In 2020, she was reckoned number 1 among the 125 biggest architecture influencers from around the world by Feedspot. The following year, Architizer included her in the list of “100 Women to Watch in Architecture”. And in 2022, she got to be on the cover of the Brazilian magazine about business and entrepreneurship, The President.
