About

Hello, I’m André Cardoso...,
an Architectural Designer currently based in Braga, Portugal.

Since 2015 I’m a graduated Master in Architecture by “Faculdade de Arquitectura da Universidade do Porto” and “École Nationale Supérieure d’Architecture Paris-Belleville”. My final dissertation “Territorial Mobility in Paris — Decay, Gentrification and Displacement” is a theoretical research on socio-spatial organisation and social mobility. I collaborated with Eduardo Souto de Moura from 2013 to 2014 as an Intern Architect and took part in many concept design projects. In 2016, I joined Craft Arquitetos in Porto as a Junior Architect. During this period I was involved in projects with a broad spectrum of scales, some of which awarded, and had the opportunity to follow works in Portugal, Spain, Switzerland and the USA. I left Craft in 2018 and since then I’m mainly focused on personal projects involving small scale residential architecture and conceptual design with a particular focus on social dynamics. I’m a licensed and registered Architect in the Portuguese Bar since 2020.
