Since 2013, the Faculty of Architecture of the University of Porto – designed by Alvaro Siza – has been the home of the Porto Academy, a summer school and a catalyst for architects and students bond together by the passion for architecture as a discipline. This year’s 6th edition makes no exception: from the 20th until the 27th of July, the school will open its doors to students and architects from all over the world.

Porto Academy is the result of the will of their founders and directors Amélia Brandão Costa and Rodrigo da Costa Lima to create a stimulating, experimental and spontaneous learning environment, at the crossroads of a multiplicity of approaches. Throughout the years, the summer school has become a platform for the disciplinary discussion between architects and students. During an intense one-week program, the participants join conferences, visits and workshop activities.

This edition features three guest lecturers: Steven Holl, Yoshiharu Tsukamoto of Atelier Bow-Wow and Not Vital, the first artist involved in the school; while the workshop leaders are Adamo Faiden, Arquitectura G, Fran Silvestre, Ling Hao, Luís Urbano, Manuel Cervantes of CC Arquitectos, Meyer-Grohbrügge & Chermayeff of June 14, Muoto, NP2F, Sauter Von Moos, SO-IL and Stephen Taylor.
