Diogo Aguiar Studio is a Portuguese architecture studio that was established in Porto in 2016. The studio operates across the fields of Art and Architecture, designing small buildings and interiors, as well as temporary or fixed spatial installations destined for the public space, with the belief that a dual practice informs and boosts the work undertaken, as a speculative and spatial investigation. Its interests lie in the material and sensorial exploration of immersive architectural or artistic spaces, whether archetypal or ready-made, through geometric, abstract and elementary compositions, which present themselves as formal systems aware of the simultaneous experience of (a space's) emptiness, seeking to reclaim the relevance of the shaping of space in Architecture.
In recent years, the practice has been awarded several nominations for international prizes, namely: Prémis FAD 2018, BigMat Prize 2019, Europe 40 under 40 Prize, Mies van der Rohe Prize 2022, among others. Recently, Diogo Aguiar Studio was selected as one of the 25 global practices in ArchDaily's New Practices of 2023.
