Rita Aguiar Rodrigues. is a Lisbon-based architectural practice, designing and producing places and objects, research and critical thinking.

Transversal to the nature of the exercise, the scale of intervention or the respective client typology, the studio’s work inherently involves the design of solutions deploying sensitive, critical and responsive perspectives on the context and the contingencies prevailing.

The design process is determined by the principles of client collaboration, mediation with the supervisory entities and assembling and coordinating teams incorporating the necessary range of technical and specialist skills,knowledge and experience.

Through joint reflection, the studio ensures broad reaching, efficient and precise project development.

The studio was founded in 2015 by the architect Rita Aguiar Rodrigues.
