Architecture

The Architecture department is composed of 62 full-time researchers and 63 collaborators.

The work is structured within studies that address questions such as the architectural environment, heritage, technology, sustainability and design, focussing on different levels of complexity. Architectural and urban heritage is relevant here in relation to heritage of Portuguese origins, particularly in Africa and Brazil, whilst environmental concerns are essentially associated with bioclimatic architecture, a theme which the FA has pioneered.
