Joao Alvaro Rocha was born in Viana do Castelo, on the north coast of Portugal in 1959.

The work of Joao Alvaro Rocha constitutes one of the most interesting examples of how the "fourth" generation of modern Portughese architects is carrying out a coherent and at the same time innovative reflection on modern design.

The works range from single family houses and housing projects, to new public spaces and major urban projects, all of which share one marked feature in the continual, almost obsessive relationship between the overall design of the space and that of the parts, united in a constant attention to detail and a close control of construction.
