Based in Lisbon, Bak Gordon Arquitectos was established in 2002 by Ricardo Bak Gordon. The studio has since built a reputation for its residential houses and educational and public buildings, projects that are rooted in place, with a strong sense and sensibility for the local features and contexts. Bak Gordon’s architecture is characterised by its pragmatism and intelligence. This book introduces the practice through a number of projects from over the past two decades along with recent work, including the Roman Theatre and National Coach Museum, both in Lisbon, as well as residences in Portugal, schools in Switzerland, and a mixed-use waterfront development in Mozambique.
