 School of Architecture

The School of Architecture has guaranteed the design, dissemination and valorisation of knowledge in the field of Architecture since nineteen ninety six, when it was named the Department of Architecture.

It is the specificity of the teaching carried out that promote 'integrated knowledge' without questioning the different disciplinary autonomies and surpass a sum of knowledge which contribute to the development of a Project methodology, sine qua non for the exercise of Architecture in its multiple valences.

The School of Architecture has been asserting itself through the construction of its own path, in a system in which, until recently, the oldest institutions, anchored in big cities, were prominent. Its undeniable recognition has been assured by their balanced combination of strategic options, scientific achievement and constant work.

The location of the School of Architecture, in the Campus of Azurém​, in the city of Guimarães where the historical centre has been recognized by UNESCO as Cultural Human Heritage is noteworthy.
