After earning bachelor degrees in architecture and civil engineering from Lehigh University, Samuel Barclay went on to obtain his M. Arch from the Southern California Institute of Architecture (SCI_Arc) in 2004.
He practiced in Los Angeles with Studio Works Architects before moving to India in 2006 to work with Studio Mumbai and founded Case Design in 2013. In addition to his experience in the design and construction of architectural projects, he has worked on furniture, interiors and exhibitions which led to the establishment of Casegoods in 2015.
Porto Academy is the result of an enormous passion for architecture as a discipline. We admire the figures that dream about it, who build, study and promote it. We believe that practice - as an exercise of the architect’s profession - is central to the future of the discipline, and therefore one of the reasons why we’ve founded Porto Academy. For a week period, one lives the passion for the discipline of architecture and enjoys intellectual freedom.
