Paulo David

Paulo David professional training began with a move to Lisbon, which became his second city of choice. In 2003 he created Paulo David Arquitectos, located in one of the tallest buildings in the Centre of Funchal from which he was able to constantly survey the town. He has dealt with a wide range of project programs and phases, the conceptual work for which has been heavily reliant on models of the terrain – veritable sculptures and readings of place. Works like Arts Centre – Casa das Mudas, Salinas Complex and Volcanism Pavilion represent strong landmarks for the office by their scale. The result of the execution of such works was the development of a new parameter for the office, specifically the publications, with special emphasis to the international magazine 2G. His projects have been internationally awarderd (among them Prémio AICA, Premio FAD de Arquitectura, Mies van der Rohe Award ).
