Education towards Architecture

The Serra Henriques Foundation developed a set of initiatives in order to create a horizontal network of cooperation and experience exchange within the sphere of Education towards Architecture. Projects guided by a strategy of bottom-up approach and starting on the sensitization of younger crowds towards the built environment.

With centralized exceptions, the quality of the public space and the insertion of buildings within urban context and the landscape still go unnoticed to the majority of political powers and the population. In Portugal, Architecture is not yet a determining factor towards the development of cities and the territory, with consequences in so many aspects of people's lives. This was the starting point and the motivation for the construction of this programme as a connective axis of Architecture Platform.
