Eduardo Souto de Moura speech

Architect Eduardo Souto de Moura studied sculpture and architecture at the School of Fine Arts in Porto and worked with several firms in Portugal before forming his own office in 1980.

His early work is often called “miesian” for its precisely aligned stone and glass planes and sharp rectangular volumes; his later studies in chiseled masonry and landscape interventions recall the sensibility of Alvaro Siza, for whom he worked for five years. Souto De Moura has become well known for his large-scale projects like the Braga stadium (2003), the Burgo Tower in Porto (2007), and the Paola Rego Museum at Cascais (2009). A professor at the University of Porto, he has taught and lectured widely. Recipient of the Pritzker Prize in 2011, he won the Wolf Prize and Veronica Rudge Green Prize in Urban Design in 2013.
