About Us.

SUMMARY is an architectural studio based in the Science and Technology Park of University of Porto.
Seeking the balance between pragmatism and experimentalism, this studio aims for solutions that could answer a prominent challenge that the contemporary world places to architecture: how to make the construction act as an increasingly summary process?
SUMMARY develops construction procedures and systems based in the principle of high efficiency, assuming the optimization of time and resources as the core theme of its practice.
