PROAP is a leading international design practice exclusively dedicated to landscape architecture, founded in 1989, based in Lisbon(Portugal), with offices in Porto (Portugal), Luanda(Angola),  and Treviso(Italy).

The partnership is led by João Nunes and currently employs a cross-disciplinary team of 30 professionals, with distinguished levels of expertise in landscape, in its most inclusive conception. The firm’s core business is landscape architecture, namely landscape design development, project management and supervision, sustainable design and development, and urban design and planning.

PROAP began to develop its international reach in 2002, mainly through award-winning entries in international competitions, and is currently developing distinguished, large-scale projects in Angola, Algiers, Belgium, Brazil, Spain, Italy, Libya, Lebanon, Luxembourg, and Switzerland.

Indeed, PROAP´s interventions have progressively spread throughout Europe and have reached Central America and Asia. The 2007 establishment of the Angolan society, PROAP SA, responded to the growing volume of  work, and is currently one of PROAP’s major investments. In the European context, the 2008 establishment of the society, PROAP Italia Srl, enables the expansion of a previous presence in the Mediterranean and aims to deepen relations with Eastern Europe and the Middle East. 

Conscious of the need to internationalize the brand, in a period of greater global demand, PROAP WORLD was created in 2012, based in Porto, joining the efforts and experiences of PROAP and MVCC ARQUITECTOS. Since January 2013, a strategic partnership of great relevance has begun with the Chinese group Tengtou, based in Ningbo with a  workshop in Shanghai.
