Short Bio

Miguel Baptista Tavares Carreiro, Architect, graduated from Faculdade de Arquitectura da Universidade do Porto (FAUP) in 2004. Over the last forteen years he has work as an Architect and as a Researcher at Roberto Collovà Architetti (Palermo, Italy), Josep Llinás Arquitectes (Barcelona, Spain), CLOUD 9/ Enric Ruiz Geli (Barcelona, Spain) e Bruno Soares Arquitectos (Lisbon, Portugal) studios. He is currently a PhD fellow at ISCTE-IUL, in a partnership with Universidade dos Açores e Governo Regional dos Açores. His Phd thesis has the provisory title PlayArch. Interactive Architecture, Environments.

research project at dinâmia'cet-Iscte

The PhD thesis project aims to the analysis of the architecture subject focusing its context on historic and emerging key events on western thought and its representation, production and construction techniques and technologies able to influence the preference for form, namely its aesthetic judgement. Additionally, the PhD thesis project aims to create knowledge on the human perception and preference for form of architecture space environments with different geometric characteristics at a contour level through a psychophysical experimental study.

Link to DINÂMIA'CET-IUL identifying mission:

The PhD thesis project is framed in the DINÂMIA’CET’s Cities and Territories research group and is coupled with such group’s general goals in the way that it seeks to better understand and produce interdisciplinary knowledge on the subjects of architecture, technology, representation and construction. By doing so it aims to contribute to the enlightenment of the architecture subject as social science and how it can positively contribute to an update of the dymanic and chaging processes of our present and future territory and social reality.
