The professional experience of Helio de Queiroz Duarte from Rio de Janeiro was rare in his time, he was one of the few architects of his generation to dedicate the same energy and intensity to both the academic career and the job on the drawing board. Appreciated by contemporary architects, but still little studied, Duarte left us as legacy a new paradigm of concept and understanding of the uses and potentiality of schools as public equipment. This heritage still bears fruit nowadays, as can be seen in the projects for the CEUs (Centers for Unified Education). His academic activity was just as impactful, after all, Duarte was one of the founders of the Faculty of Architecture and Urbanism at the University of São Paulo, one of the main creators of the first postgraduate program in the country for this same institucion, as well as for the introduction of the TGI (Final Graduation Interdisciplinary Work), required today by all colleges. The aim of this research is to understand how part of his prodution became a reference for Brazilian modern architecture, which distinguishes and references the production of mainly educational programs, both from the spatial and pedagogical point of view until today. This work intends to measure the influence of his academic activity in the conformation and systematization of the undergraduate and postgraduate education of architecture and urbanism in Brazil. At the same time, it seeks to verify how the complex of Helio Duarte\'s activities collaborated in the consolidation and recognition of the architect and urbanist profession in São Paulo. (AU)
