Sauter von Moos is an architecture studio established in Basel and as of late based in Miami. The studio engages in work on all scales, both in theory and practice. Amongst their best-known projects are the House with a Tree that received the Swiss Architecture Award for ‘Best First Building,’ the contribution ‘Sonsbeek Readymade’ for the 2017 Chicago Architecture Biennial, and the recently finished Villa Hammer. As co-editors and authors they have published a series of books including Earth Water Air Fire (2014), achtung: die Landschaft (2015), and Painting the Sky Black: Louis Kahn and the Architectonization of Nature (2018). Besides their practical activities, both partners have been engaged in teaching and research, amongst others at ETH Zurich, the Accademia di Architettura in Mendrisio, Harvard GSD, TU Munich and Cornell University. Since 2018, Sauter von Moos are teaching at the University of Miami School of Architecture.
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.
