OTTOTTO is a cutting edge architectural studio founded by Teresa Otto in 2015, 5 years after having co-created LIKEarchitects.
Based in Porto, Portugal, OTTOTTO combines a builders and an artists approach to projects that range from collective housing to offices, exhibitions, installations and objects.
This practice looks at temporary projects as a way of rapidly influencing the urban environment (even if just for a little while) and testing new solutions and constructive details. Simultaneously, OTTOTTO brings off-the-shelf elements to construction, using their original shape and material for surprisingly new functions.
Teresa Otto started OTTOTTO in 2015 after having co-founded LIKEarchitects in 2010 and having worked in RCR arquitectes in Spain. She graduated as an architect from the Faculty of Porto (Portugal) after a detour by the Faculty of Valle Guilia (Rome, Italy).
Teresa has received numerous awards and honors, including; “best design: offices” - IDEA Tops (China 2014), “Art and Sculpture in Architecture” - Minsk Biennale Young Architects (Belarus 2013), “Lighting Design” – Larus prize (Portugal 2012), “ArchDaily Building of the Year” (2011).
Her work is recognized for its artistic and innovative aspect.
In 2014, Teresa represented her country, Portugal, in the Venice Biennale, among other young promising architects.
