The House of the Arts by FAT is located in the heart of Miranda do Corvo, a region that is an hour away from Porto. FAT, an established Portuguese design firm standing for Future Architecture Thinking aimed to create an iconic structure when designing this geometry-infused architecture piece.

Standing amidst its vast green landscape, the House of the Arts boasts a bold red facade and a structure that relies on sharp and angular forms. The vivid and conceptual architecture piece is sure to become a growing landmark for its region's visitors, acting as a spatial metaphor for the Portuguese art scene and creative culture.

The structure showcases sloped rooftops and zigzag-resembling elements that add an urban touch to its natural surrounding topography. The industrial red building stands apart from its neighbouring small village homes and open green landscape. Stats for Sharp Geometry Structures Trending: Older & Chilly
