The 2011 Pritzker Architecture Prize Eduardo Souto De Moura free pdf "During the past three decades, the Portuguese architect Eduardo Souta de Moura has produced a body of work that is of our time, but also carries echoes of architectural traditions. His oeuvre is convincing proof of modern idioms expressive potential and adaptability to distinct local situations. Always mindful of context, understood in the broadest sense, and grounded in place, time, and function, Souto de Moura's architecture reinforces a sense of history while expanding the range of contemporary expression. Eduardo Souto de Moura's architecture is not obvious, frivolous, or picturesque. It is imbued with intelligence and seriousness. 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. His buildings have a unique ability to convey seemingly conflicting characteristics - power and modesty, bravado and subtlety, bold public authority and sense of intimacy - at the same time. For architecture that appears effortless, serene, and simple, and for the care and poetry that permeates each project."

After two years of military service he won the competition for the Cultural Centre in Porto, the beginning of his career as an independent architect. He is frequently invited as a guest professor to Lausanne and Zurich in Switzerland as well as Harvard in the United States. Along with his architecture practice, he is a professor at the University of Oporto, and is a visiting professor at Geneva, Paris-Belleville, Harvard, and Dublin.
