Methodic Optimism: Fala Atelier
Hear Ana Luisa Soares of renowned Portuguese studio fala atelier as she provides insight into their prolific architectural practice that defies the norm. fala is a naïve architecture practice based in porto, led by Filipe Magalhães, Ana Luisa Soares and Ahmed Belkhodja. Established in 2013, the atelier works with methodic optimism on a wide range of projects, from territories to birdhouses. fala’s projects are a medley of formal languages, references, quotations and themes, regulated by an obsession for clarity; its architecture is both hedonic and post-modern, intuitive and rhetorical.
