From their works, most of them the result of a public competition, they highlight EPRAMI Professional School (Young Architect Award, 04/05 CVG) and EBI grammar school (selected to Habitar Portugal 2003-2005) both in Paredes de Coura, the environmental centres of Matosinhos (selected to Habitar Portugal 2000-2002) and of Protected Landscape the Corno de Bico (selected to Habitar Portugal 2006-2008, FAD finalist in 2008 and named Mies Award 2009) and Bouça das Cardosas Houses (selected to Habitar Portugal 2012-2014, named Mies Award 2015.
In 2007 they integrated the selection ' 44 Young International Architects ' / Architecture Plus (Grupo Via, Barcelona). In 2008, Atelier da Bouça was selected for the nº 128 of the magazine 'Arquitectura Viva' under the title ' EMERGENT Twenty Emerging Teams '.
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.
