In June 1974, the building of the School of Economics and Management of the University of Porto was one of the first to be built in the Asprela Campus, where today most of the public and private higher education schools are found, as well as research centres.
Designed by Architect Viana de Lima, the architecture of the building (its first project dates back to 1960) is a mix of the author’s modern insight and the more conservative taste of the authorities of the time. The building has courtyards and galleries in a traditional structure (cloisters) and it is formed by geometric solids. Split into four floors, the various areas of the building are linked by a common element – the module.
Since 1972 until now, the FEP premises have undergone various expansion works and today occupy a total built area of about 3 500 sq.m. (Construction of the Post-Graduate Courses Building, by architect Camilo Cortesão).
