Running time: 100 mins

The continuous use of certain specific motifs defines an architectural vocabulary, a particular language. This lecture will address FALA’s tropes.


FALA is a naïve architecture practice based in Oporto, led by Filipe Magalhães, Ana Luisa Soares and Ahmed Belkhodja. Established in 2013, the atelier works with methodical optimism on a wide range of projects, from territories to birdhouses. FALA’s projects are a medley of formal languages, references, quotations, and themes, only regulated by an obsession for clarity; its architecture is both hedonistic and post-modern, intuitive and rhetorical.


Filipe Magalhães (porto, 1987) graduated in architecture at Faculdade de Arquitectura do Porto and Fakulteta za Arhitekturo in Ljubljana; with a thesis titled ‘between the abstract and the figurative’. He has worked with Harry Gugger in Basel and SANAA in Tokyo. He is currently a Visiting Professor at Bratislava’s Faculty of Architecture.


Ana Luisa Soares (porto, 1988) graduated in architecture at Faculdade de Arquitectura do Porto and Tokyo University; with a thesis titled ‘the matter of ideas’. She worked with Harry Gugger in Basel and Toyo Ito in Tokyo. She is currently a a Visiting Professor at Bratislava’s Faculty of Architecture.
