Porto Academy proposes a Visiting School based on the very successful experience of the Summer School at Faculty of Architecture of the University of Porto.
Porto Academy started in 2013 to propose an alternative academic learning based on a close tuition from a very different range of ambitious architects who focus their work on practice looking forward to build their intentions.
Following invitations from institutions, friends and previous guests, we decided to move next to them, trying to settle the proximity we want to keep. We are now moving around the world closing the gap between ambitious architects and passionate students.
Porto Academy Visiting Kahn & Venturi Scott Brown will be focused on the legacy of the legendary architects Denise Scott Brown, Louis Kahn and Robert Venturi. The workshop studios and lectures will take place at the University of Pennsylvania, Philadelphia, with some exceptions. We will also be visiting the Architectural Archives and some relevant works of Kahn & Venturi Scott Brown.
Porto Academy Visiting Kahn & Venturi Scott Brown will take place at the University of Pennsylvania, Philadelphia.
Porto Academy Visiting Kahn & Venturi Scott Brown will happen from the 5th to the 11th June 2020.
Porto Academy is open to students as well as professionals worldwide.
The tuition language is English.
