Porto Academy proposes a nomadic 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 Barragán was from the 31st May until the 7th of June. Two local studios and two foreign studios worked over Luis Barragán legacy inside of two of his main buildings Casa Barragán and Casa Gilardi. It was a privilege to work with some of the most ambitious contemporary architects inside two masterpieces designed by one of the most prestigious architects ever, Luis Barragán.
