instituto


We founded a cultural venue as a complement to our studio, in the heart of Porto. INSTITUTO is a focal point for different forms of cultural expression. It has become a place for sharing and debating architecture, art, design, urban culture and spatial practices, with an emphasis on matters of social and political concern in contemporary society.
