We began working together in Barcelona in 2001. Since then we have focused our practice primarily on public works through competitions along with selected private commissions. Working with circumstance and turning constraints into opportunities, we try to find constructive and conceptual responses that are specific to each project and to each site, putting emphasis on ease of use, discreet intervention within the context and clarity of construction. We currently combine our practice with teaching.
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.
