Diogo Aguiar Studio is a Portuguese architecture studio founded in Porto in 2016.
It operates between the fields of Art and Architecture, developing custom-conceived buildings and interiors and spatial installations, oscillating between public and private contexts. The studio focuses on spatial and material experimentation in the pursuit of creating immersive and sensorially appealing spaces. The emerging practice has been distinguished with several publications and nominations for international awards. In 2018, the studio was selected to integrate the official Portuguese Representation at the 16th Architecture Venice Biennale – Public Without Rhetoric.
