Apresentação Pessoal

José Pedro Sousa is an Architect graduated by FAUP (Porto), Master in Genetic Architectures by ESARQ-UIC (Barcelona), and Doctor in Architecture by IST-UTL (Lisbon). During his doctoral studies, he was a special student at MIT (Cambridge, MA) and a Visiting Scholar at UPenn (Philadelphia, PA).

Since 2009, he is an Assistant Professor at FAUP teaching courses related to geometry and digital technologies. At FAUP, he founded and directs DFL, which is a research group from CEAU-FAUP dedicated to exploring the impact of technologies such as computational design, digital fabrication, additive manufacturing, robotics or XR technologies, on the thinking and practice of architectural design. Among other research achievements, he was the PI of a FCT Research project on robotic technologies in architecture and of several collaborations with large industrial companies such as Amorim and Mota Engil. Before FAUP, he was Professor of FCTUC (Coimbra), ESARQ-UIC (Barcelona) and IAAC (Barcelona).

In the last 2 decades, his professional activity combined the fields of teaching, research and practice, exploring the new conceptual and material opportunities emerging from the use of digital technologies in architecture. His work at all these levels has been regularly featured at international conferences and invited lectures, it has been published in leading international magazines and peer-reviewed publications, and it has received several distinctions such as the FEIDAD '05, the Young Researcher Award 2009 of UL/CGD in architecture, or the Pedagogical Innovation Award from the UP in 2017 and 2018. Among other dissemination actions, he was the co-chair of the joint Conference between the associations of eCAADe (Europe) and SIGraDi (iberoamerican), which took place at FAUP in 2019 under the theme of "Architecture in the Age of the 4th Industrial Revolution".
