National Award for the Teaching of Architecture

The Prize began in Portugal in 2012 with the signing of a protocol between the Serra Henriques Foundation and the Archiprix Foundation, aimed at distinguishing the best Master's works in Architecture from all Portuguese faculties.

Thanks to the immediate commitment to the participation and innovative matrix of teachers and students in Architecture, Urbanism and Landscaping, the Prize is recognized as the main national award for young architects and a portrait of the best in teaching in these fields.

Every year, the Serra Henriques Foundation reinforces the scope of the Award, in close collaboration with all Universities, Higher Institutes, the Order of Architects, the Portuguese Association of Urban Planners, the Portuguese Association of Landscape Architects, the Lisbon Architecture Triennale, Casa da Arquitectura and DoCoMoMo International, enhancing it through partnerships with entities of Public Administration, Education and Culture. thus giving greater exposure to the profile of all finalists.

The Serra Henriques Foundation publishes and distributes free of charge a yearbook with the nominated projects, their authors and tutors, which were not only considered by each institution as the most representative of the quality of Architecture education in Portugal, but also passed the careful scrutiny of the Jury panels made up of eminent professionals in these areas.
