Penoyre & Prasad’s annual office study trip was to Lisbon this year.

Our weekend included visits to some of Lisbon’s key architectural sites, including the EDP HQ, Ordem dos Arquitectos, Riberia das Naus, Terreiro do Paco, MuDe Museum, Elevador Santa Justa, Museu dos Coches, Jeronimos Monastery, Belem Cultural Centre and a guided tour of Charles Correa’s Champalimaud Foundation.

We have made many study trips to European and UK cities of architectural significance over the years. Experiencing high quality architecture and urban design together in this way stimulates debate and reflection within our team on the nature of good design, providing inspiration for our own work upon returning to our studio.
