Porto School of Architecture
The Faculty of Architecture of the University of Porto (Portuguese: Faculdade de Arquitectura da Universidade do Porto), or FAUP, is an architecture faculty located in Porto, Portugal, and one of the fourteen constituent faculties of the University of Porto.
Although the Architecture course has its roots in the School of Fine Arts of the University of Porto, FAUP has been independent for over 20 years, and has given rise to the modernist movement known as the School of Porto, which has achieved nationwide and worldwide prominence.
When the growing numbers of Architecture students at the School of Fine Arts where becoming excessive for the proper teaching of the course, the University of Porto granted a new location in another parish of the city, Massarelos. Álvaro Siza was commissioned to design the premises for the newly independent faculty, which were completed in 1992.
