and researching. He lived and worked in various cities - Rio de Janeiro, Oporto, Barcelona, San Francisco 

and Lisbon.

In the office - ressanogarcia arquitectos - projects of architecture, urban design and the development of

Berkeley, in 1997. At present he is Head of the Department of Architecture and Urbanism at 

Universidade Lusófona in Lisbon and he is a visiting teacher and keynote speaker at several international 

seminars, workshops and conferences. His research focuses on the transformation of port cities and

Design, funded by E.U, that hosts experts from several countries to discuss port city synergies.
