Born on May 14, 1968, completed his studies in architecture at Lusíada University, Lisbon, in 1993. In 1995 completed his Master’s degree in Industrial Design at Domus Academy in Italy. From 1995 to 1998 he was Director of Detail Plan III of Expo 98.
He founded the studio, today called Nuno Ladeiro, Architecture + Design, which has been carrying out urbanism, architecture and design projects in Portugal and abroad. At the same time, Nuno Ladeiro was Art Director of brand Dimensão and was personally involved in all projects and the strategy of the brand, which still exists, and is also responsible for what is now called Dimensão Nova. Alongside his intense activity, Nuno Ladeiro is a university professor.
He has received awards and honorable mentions in Architecture and Design in Portugal and Italy. Nuno Ladeiro is often invited to participate as a speaker in lectures, master classes and symposiums at universities in various countries, as well as workshops and debates on architecture and design.
Unlike most architects, he began his career working on large-scale projects that leveraged his career in the late 1990s. “As soon as I finished my studies at Domus Academy in Italy I was invited to direct the Detail Plan 3 Although I was very young, I coordinated this urban project and worked with big names in the national landscape, among others the Architect Troufa Real, Architect Vassalo Rosa, Architect Ribeiro Teles, urban planner Nunes da Silva, Designer Daciano Costa, Painter Sa Nogueira and the Sculptor Fernando Conduto.
I ended up having a different path from the other architects of my generation who started with small scale projects and gradually grew. I started with large-scale projects and over time I also dedicated myself to interiors and today I am also an expert in the design of furniture and small objects ”.
At the same time, Nuno Ladeiro developed a career dedicated to teaching. “I started teaching in 1997 and was a professor of architecture history but nowadays I have the responsibility of directing the Design Course at the Lusófona University of Porto”.
For Nuno Ladeiro, the main projects are not limited to large exterior projects, but also to interior space and the integration of furniture in architecture. “I like the modern architecture and its simplicity, the elementary forms that are part of the history of humanity. I believe that only with the composition of these forms can we make works that can last in time and not in just one phase. Architecture and design must be timeless. ”
