Ana Rua

Oporto, PT



My name is Ana and I am an architect with six years of experience from Portugal. Please consider this letter as my formal application   for a position in your office, hoping to join your staff.
Since the beginning of my career, after graduating from FAUP, I have  worked in different places, because I have had this dream to live in places such us Barcelona or New York.
I have returned to Portugal for personal matters, and have worked here for almost  five years, understanding better how to construct and how to be a good architect.
Now, I think it is time for me to live outside this small country again, learning more about other cultures and other ways of considering architecture, contributing with my will to work and the knowledge I have received from the well -known “Escola do Porto”.
I would be glad to be able to work at your office  if you think there is any possibility.  I am available both for a personal or online interview at a mutually convenient time.
You can find my curriculum and portfolio at
