This work was a submission to a contest launched by the students association of the architecture faculty of the University of Porto “AE FAUP” regarding the creation of their new visual identity.
The logo was inspired by the faculty building, designed by the famous architect Álvaro Siza Viera. What is unique about this building is the way that it’s divided into different blocks connected by underground corridors. We used the image of those blocks to form the letters of the acronym FAUP. The second “building” represents also the acronym “AE” (Portuguese: Associação de Estudantes) that stands for “students association”.
