He has deep knowledge about the Portuguese contemporary architecture and culture and is the perfect guide for this subject. I can warmly recommend him. Matilda Stannow / deputy editor The Swedish Review of Architecture.” December 15, 2011   Jakob Wranne Jakob hired HOB as an Architect in 2008 Top qualities: Great Results, Personable, Expert “At the time I was employed at Brunnberg & Forshed Arkitektkontor AB, we traveled ≈50 persons to Portugal to study the architecture. We hired Ola as our guide; this is my experience of Ola during that trip, and since then: Ola is an excellent guide showing Portuguese architecture, its methods, grammar, history, implications and impact. He also does an excellent job in showing the position of the Portuguese architect in the process of planning and building. For a non-Portuguese architect this utterly interesting, being introduced to the position, impact and importance of the classical architectural position commanding the entire process of planning, drafting and construction. On top of this Ola tells the story of the different family trees of Portuguese architecture, i.e. which architects did learn the trade working in which architects offices. This gives a very good insight in the different traditions and strains of the Portuguese scene. Do use Ola. We did.

Lars Johan Tengnér, architect SAR/MSA, Murman arkitekter AB, Stockholm, Sweden” January 18, 2012   Hans Göransson Vårt kontor har, för förkovrings skull, sedan länge försökt göra en årlig studieresa. 2005 gick den till till Porto och Porto´s omgivningar, för att vi närmare skulle bekanta oss med traktens arkitektur, som vi tidigare endast lärt känna i tidskrifter och böcker. För resans praktiska organisation stod, förutom vi själva, Style Scandinavia AB, som gjorde ett utmärkt jobb av sin uppgift. I Porto tog Hans Ola Boman vid som vår guide. Hans kompetens och engagemang, parad med öppenhet och gladlynthet, gjorde just denna resa till en av de mest minnesvärda i kontorets gemensamma minne, något vi fortfarande refererar till. Vi fick en grundlig genomgång av Alvaro Siza´s verksamhet genom åren, där Hans Ola var anställd sedan några år, liksom de övriga regionala arkitekternas verk och gärning. Förutom den  goda organisationen och arkitektoniska kunnigheten vi fick del av, var vistelsen en njutning i sig, Porto är en härlig plats att besöka. Vi är således helt beredda att ge Hans Ola Boman våra allra bästa rekommendationer.

He took us around one day, including giving us access to a newly completed office tower by Souto de Moura, and put together a program of other highlights for the other day. As a resident of Porto and by then also an employee of Alvaro Siza's office, he had all the valuable insight information about the city and its architecture. He contributed to a great extent in making the most out of our short study trip and he has also a very pleasant manner. I can therefor warmly recommend Mr. Boman and his services.” January 30, 2012   Jörgen Åkerlund Jörgen hired HOB as an Architect in 2006 Top qualities: Great Results, Expert, Creative “Ola is the most thorough guide you can imagine. As an architect he knows how to make the perfect tour. He tell you the full story of who, when and why. One can tell Ola enjoy his work as a guide through his engaging way of proposing, altering and adding in the program.” February 5, 2012   Lawrence C Davis Lawrence hired HOB as an Architect in 2010, 2011 and 2012 “I knew Hans before he officially was a part of the Lusitan Architecture Experience program, when he was working for Siza's office. He gave an excellent tour of contemporary architectural work in and around Oporto. Naturally when he formalized this aspect of his career, we kept with him and hope to use his expertise again in the future when we return to Portugal. Han's background being from Sweden is an advantage. It gives him a certain objectivity with the subject matter. At the same time he has lived and worked in Portugal for many years and this gives him many insights into why architectural culture has evolved the way it has, in this Portugal's contemporary built environment. I would definitely recommend Hans in the future to any group, academic or otherwise. "Architectural Tourism," is a growing activity unto itself, but beyond that Hans offers a truly intellectual and educational experience to anyone involved. He goes beyond reciting basic facts and technical information, Hans is able to give compelling background to the projects visited in ways that stitch them intellectually and technically to their larger cultural contexts.” August 24, 2012   Carl Berg, CEO at Style Scandinavia Carl hired HOB as an Architect since 2003 and hired several times Top qualities: Great Results, Creative, Great personal network. For over ten years Hans Ola Boman has guided more than 40 of our groups and more than 1.000 architects from Sweden and Norway in contemporary architecture all over Portugal from Lisbon to Porto. He has very good knowledge, make excellent guiding and manage to get inside objects that are normally not accessable. It is a great pleasure to give him our very best recommendations.   Sven Thiberg, professor em KTH/Architecture, Stockholm, Sweden, architect SAR/MSA. In November 2011 I participated in an architecture tour to Portugal arranged by “Arkitekturmuseets vänner”, Friends of the Swedish Museum of Architecture. The tour focused on modern, public buildings in Lisbon. Responsible for the selection of objects, planning and guiding at the individual projects was the Swedish architect Ola Boman. Before arriving at the particular objects, Boman presented facts about them. He also provided a picture of the architect’s thoughts and intentions regarding the design, based on an understanding of the design principles and work procedures of the office in charge. The presentations facilitated the interpretation of the objects and allowed us to approach and place them in a broader theoretical architectural context. Boman’s guiding additionally offered interesting references to global architectural tendencies. Boman is a competent, creative, brave and enthusiastic interpreter of the contradictory trends in modern architecture. His refreshing analysis of the objects added value and a deeper insight regarding the dilemmas and challenges of architectural interpretation. Thus the study visit provided a starting point for an exciting discussion about architectural design as a consequence of society and culture, and about our ability to understand what it reproduces.
