João is an architect, builder, gardener and “pseudo-scientist” based in Porto. He has been a pioneer in the city’s urban renewal. Active as an architect and builder, he has gone down the finest and dirtiest details in construction. His first project, a house in the historical center with seven flats renewed under the RECRIA program, had fixed rents and communal services. He has learned from his mistakes, becoming a ferocious agent of gentrification, creating flats for airb’n’others. His last project, while making any tourist proud to be in Porto, is also a laboratory for experiences in solar and thermodynamic heating. Don’t try looking for it on the internet, it only exists in real life!
