My name is Rui Vítor Baltazar and I’m an architect who likes to poke other creative areas.
I was born in Coimbra, Portugal in 1986.
I have a Masters degree in Architecture, which I got by attending the Department of Architecture of the Faculty of Science and Technology of the University of Coimbra.
I won a few awards as a student one being the 1st prize in the Secil Universities Award ’09 – Architecture, the most prestigious academic award in Portugal. (That was pretty great!)
As a professional, I’ve already worked in a few architectural offices, such as Pedra Líquida, Colectivo Arquitectos and Alice Faria e Pedro Brígida, arquitectos, with whom i stil collaborate. I also develop my own work as part of FØRT.
Besides my architectural inclination, I am interested in a lot of other creative fields like design, illustration, photography, cinema, music… If it’s art-related, I want to know more about it and, in all probability, want to try it!
