Pedro Campos Costa. Campos Costa Architects was found at the end of 2007 as an interdisciplinary research and development practice to inform architectural design. Their rigorous approach to architecture drives decision making amongst design teams and suppliers with the aim of creating an integrated project. Their portfolio of work has developed and delivered projects at different scales, from buildings to household furniture. Each of these projects is the result of detailed study of construction processes, systems and materials that validates its cultural and social significance.

It seeks to adopt innovative technology, such as eco-materials and low emission technology, as well as passive design principles. It takes the position that promoting resilience at the local scale is key to addressing the global environmental challenges of today.
