Centro de Estudos de Arquitectura e Urbanismo (CEAU)

Acronym: CEAU <i>Centro de Estudos de Arquitectura e Urbanismo (CEAU)</i> - Abre numa nova janela
Person in Charge: José Miguel Rodrigues

The Center for Studies in Architecture and Urbanism (CEAU) was established in 1994 and it statutorily comprises the R&D Center of Architecture School of the University of Porto, integrating, also, a Research & Development Unit (EAT-North-145) funded and assessed by the Foundation of Science and Technology (FCT).

CEAU includes a total of 153 researchers, 75 Integrated Researchers (Ph.D.), 20 Integrated Researchers (non Ph.D.) and 58 Collaborator Researchers. Most of the non-doctoral members attend the Doctoral Programme in Architecture at FAUP, developing their thesis in connection with the CEAU ongoing research projects.

CEAU is also deeply committed to the development of international relations, taking part in several university and cooperation networks.
Following this policy, CEAU also hosts, for periods of varying lengths, postdoc fellows and Ph.D. students from different international institutions, mainly from European and South American countries.
Although Architecture remains the main disciplinary area, CEAU also includes, among its integrated and associate members, researchers from other fields such as Anthropology, Archaeology, Economics, Engineering, Geography, History and Sociology.

In order to develop its activity, CEAU is structured into seven research groups, namely:
  • Architecture: Theory, Project and History (ATPH)
  • Architecture and modes of inhabiting (AMH)
  • Housing architectural design and forms of dwelling (AdC)
  • Center for Communication and Spatial Representation (CCRE)
  • Digital Fabrication Laboratory (DFL)
  • Territory Dynamics and Morphologies (MDT)
  • Architecture, City and Territory Heritage (PACT)
  • Theory and Project Practices (T2P)
CEAU research activity has been supported by FCT funding projects as well as by contracts established with other public and private institutions.

Besides books publication, papers in journals and conferences, etc., the research activity of the Center also includes the organization of national and international workshops, seminars, conferences, and other scientific events, in order to disseminate the results of the work developed at CEAU.
