Portuguese Association of Architects

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.

The 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.
