murmuro is an architecture practice based in Porto, founded by João Caldas and Rita Breda.
We are a highly dedicated team that thrives on collaboration. Our multidisciplinary work process is not a mean to reach a fast consensus but rather an opportunity for dialogue, to exchange information looking to what was at first hidden in order to expand the project brief in search of the optimal solution.
We have also felt the need to explore other means of production as processes of the investigation and critical thinking and that is where curatorial research comes in. Curatorial work or interdisciplinary practices understood not as failed (architecture) or utopias, not even as side disciplinary practice but rather as opportunities to explore, to act on, and therefore as source of information that will later enrich future projects.

Well, you name it!
Regardless of the program, scale and budget we are not afraid of any challenge and will tackle it with the same enthusiasm. And if you haven’t found the sort of work you are looking for in our project list, don’t worry. This website is just a sample, but most important, we have surrounded ourselves of amazing professionals that will go the extra mile to fulfil your requirements. From engineers, builders, designers, artists, photographer, curators.
So you have reached the end of this “about” page, and you know a little bit more about us and, probably like some (or all, hopefully) of our projects, but still have some questions. Just GET IN TOUCH !
Whether to challenge us with a new project, inquiries for publications, talks, job offers or for a cup of coffee, we’ll get back to you.
And don’t forget: português é a nossa língua materna.
