Portuguese architect Eduardo Souto de Moura wins Pritzker Architecture Prize

Portuguese architect Eduardo Souto de Moura wins Pritzker Architecture Prize

By Associated Press, Monday, March 28, 1:34 PM

LOS ANGELES — Portuguese architect Eduardo Souto de Moura, whose buildings are praised for their careful use of natural materials and their unexpected dashes of color, has won the 2011 Pritzker Architecture Prize, the prize’s jury announced Monday.

Souto de Moura, 58, joins Frank Gehry, Tadao Ando and Renzo Piano in receiving the top honor in the field. He is recognized for the homes, hotels, museums, sports facilities and other structures he has designed, predominantly in Portugal but also in several other European countries.

“Eduardo Souto de Moura’s architecture is not obvious, frivolous or picturesque. It is imbued with intelligence and seriousness,” the Pritzker jurors wrote in their citation. “His work requires an intense encounter, not a quick glance. And like poetry, it is able to communicate emotionally to those who take the time to listen . . . .”

good for him!
his designs are creative and mainstream at the same time.

Cesar Pelli diserves next Pritzker... (or the previous one)

I was surprised to hear Eduardo Souto de Moura won it!
I had a strong feeling David Chipperfield would win it this year.
It is deserved nevertheless!

He's rather safe than sorry. Good for project developers though - he certainly makes above average office towers.

His architecture is poetical in a way, but I am not sure, if I like it. Nevertheless, I congratulate him and and to Portugal and I wish him good luck to next career.

Carandá Cultural Market in Braga

It was originally built as a covered market in 1980-1984 and designed by a young architect Eduardo de Souto Moura, his first public work. An architectural success, it was a commercial failure, due to lack of parking and the growth of larger, more convenient peripheral centres. After attempts to resuscitate the market’s fortunes, the Braga Council again appointed a now celebrated de Souto Moura as redevelopment architect. An interesting concept has evolved in which the existing columns with the roof removed are in a landscaped garden central to the complex. Now it looks like contemporary ancient ruins. It is used mainly for dance events, exhibitions and shows.
