A' Design Award & Competition is pleased to inform that the project “School of Technology” by Nuno Montenegro became winner of the famous Platinum A' Design Award in Architecture, Building and Structure Design Competition chosen as a winner by the international jury panel of the A' Design Awards & Competitions within a great number of other competing designs.

About the “School of Technology” Building Design
Nuno Montenegro, the lead architect of the awarded “School of Technology” building design says “The key feature of this building is a massive portico that floats over the school gardens. The structure arises from the combination of the two programmatic requirements. The need to create an institutional iconic image, and the inclusion of a set of amphitheaters. The result is achieved in one of the largest concrete structures in the world.” In an article published in the Design Magazine, CC Sullivan wrote about Nuno Montenegro’s award winning work: “Montenegro's School of Technology and Management building never fails to create opportunities for reflection. The theatricality and grandeur are unmatched elsewhere...” Learn more about this project at:
