Porto-based fala atelier – fala meaning ‘informal conversation’ in Portugese - was founded in in 2013 by Filipe Magalhães, Ana Luisa Soares and Ahmed Belkodhja. The trio all began their careers interning at Harry Gugger Studio in Basel, before going on to work with SANAA, Toyo Ito and Atelier Bow-Wow.

The practice has worked extensively on residential conversions and new builds, with recent projects including their own house and studio, and a house in Rua do Paraiso which was nominated for the 2019 Mies van der Rohe Award.

fala atelier will be workshop leaders at the 2019 Porto Academy.

The Architecture Foundation programmes Architecture on Stage in partnership with the Barbican Centre.
