AD Interviews: Francisco Aires Mateus

Aires Mateus - founded by brothers and partners, Manuel and Francisco Aires Mateus - is an acclaimed contemporary practice that upholds the strong tradition of Portuguese architecture. We recently had the chance to interview one of the partners: Francisco Aires Mateus.

Francisco Aires Mateus has been a professor in Portugal and Norway. Currently, he teaches at the University of Lugano and has given lectures and seminars in Spain, the United Kingdom, Argentina, Mexico, Canada, Chile, Japan, and many other countries.

Aires Mateus has been awarded with the FAD Award on several occasions, and has also been a finalist for the Mies van der Rohe Award.
