Porto Academy is an independent entity exclusively dedicated to the discipline of Architecture. It is deeply concerned about authorship and it proposes a free apprenticeship-system grounded on ambitious architects with great intellectual value. It was born out of a need to push forward the discipline into the practice proposing a complementary learning experience based on people’s singularity and away from established rules, dogmas and ideas - always trying to dilute borders and bringing people together.
