Since 2012, the Portuguese Association of Architects has
played a relevant role in the process of implementing the National
Architecture Award - Archiprix Portugal - instituted by the Serra
Henriques Foundation. This represents a very strong common ambition and a
strong commitment towards the valorization of national education and
the excellence of the young talents in the field of Architecture.
In 2016, the Portuguese Association of Architects was the Foundation's national partner regarding the implementation of the New Traditional Architecture Prize, in collaboration with the International Network for Traditional Architecture & Urbanism under the purview of the Prince of Wales and with the High Patronage of the President of the Portuguese Republic.
Portuguese Association of Architects is, therefore, the Serra Henriques
Foundation's first institutional partner within the sphere of the
quality and sustainability of Portugal's built environment and the
strategic missions of international scope. We emphasize the involvement
in the implementation of the National Architecture and Landscape Policy,
as well as in the European Forum for Architecture Policies.
