Nicolas Dorval-Bory Architectes is an office of architecture based in Paris. Nicolas Dorval-Bory (1980) graduated from the ENSA Paris Val de Seine in 2007. Nicolas trained with Andrée Putman and Laurent Deroo before founding his office in Paris in 2008. After collaborations in Chile and Argentina (2009-2010), the office Nicolas Dorval-Bory Architectes operates today in a wide range of scales in France and abroad. In 2016, it has been awarded with the national AJAP prize, from the french Ministère de la Culture, an important biennial recognition for young architects. Nicolas Dorval-Bory has been teaching, notably alongside Philippe Rahm, at the the ENSA Versailles since 2014 and previously at the ENSA Normandy (2011-2014).
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.
