Diogo Aguiar Studio is an architecture studio founded in Porto, Portugal, in 2016.
The studio works on the frontiers of art and architecture, developing spatial installations and small-scale buildings and interiors, oscillating between public and private contexts.
In 2017, Diogo Aguiar Studio was one of the five Porto architecture studios selected by competition to design an ephemeral pavilion for film venues in Serralves Contemporary Art Museum gardens, as part of “Incerteza Viva” - 32nd São Paulo Bienal.
In 2018, the studio was selected to integrate the official Portuguese Representation at the 16th Architecture Venice Biennale - Public Without Rethoric.

Diogo Aguiar (Porto, 1983) graduated from the University of Porto’s Faculty of Architecture in 2008.
Before founding Diogo Aguiar Studio in 2016, he collaborated with several studios, including UNStudio, in Amsterdam, and co-founded former collective LIKEarchitects, in Porto (selected for Portugal’s representation in the Venice Architecture Biennale in 2014). Diogo Aguiar is also co-author of the Eco-Resort, in Pedras Salgadas, built in 2012, which has won the ArchDaily Building of the Year Award.
Diogo’s work has been widely published and he has won several awards in Portugal and abroad.
Since 2017, Diogo is the commissioner of Concreta, the main Portuguese Architecture and Construction fair.
He is also co-founder of the Architecture Gallery, in Porto.
Most recently, Diogo was appointed co-curator of the Architecture Program of Bienal da Maia
