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, quotations and tropes; its architecture is both intuitive, rhetorical, hedonic and post-modern.
fala has lectured at different universities and institutions, including the architectural association, the riba and the barbican in london, the gsapp in new york, the graham foundation in chicago, the centre for fine arts in brussels, the versailles’ faculty of architecture in paris and the casa della architettura in rome; among others, fala has taugh at the faculties of architecture in venice, munich, munster, liége and bratislava. the atelier’s work has been exhibited at the architecture biennials in venice and chicago, the serralves foundation, the pavillon de l’arsenal and in casa da cerca, and in single exhibitions in panama, italy, macedonia, france and portugal. fala’s work has been widely published in international media platforms, including domus, engawa, baumeister, zeppellin, plot and the architectural review. the atelier has published ’01’, a collection of early projects by the atelier, and the international architecture magazine 2G is creating a monographic issue about fala’s work, to be released in 2020.
