Souto de Moura stars at Cevisama's Architecture and Design Forum

January 2018

Cevisama, which runs from 5th to 9th February at Feria Valencia, continues to develop its value-added events programme for 2018.  This year the Architecture and Interior Design Forum will feature renowned individuals from the fields of interior design and architecture.

Among them will be the Pritzker prize winner Eduardo Souto de Moura, who will be talking on 5th February.  Born in 1952, Souto de Moura studied at the School of Fine Arts of the University of Porto.  After working at Álvaro Siza’s studio from 1974 to 1979, he set up his own practice in 1980.

His outstanding works include Braga market, the Casa das Artes Cultural Center in Porto, the Municipal Stadium in Braga, the Portuguese Pavilion at the 11th Venice Architecture Biennale, the Todos los Santos Hospital in Lisbon, and the Paula Rêgo Museum in Cascais. 

Outside of Portugal he is probably best known for the Uitzicht Crematorium in Courtray, Belgium.  Currently he has several projects in progress, including La Comédie theatre in Clermont-Ferrand, France.

Souto de Moura has been a visiting professor at the architecture schools of Paris-Belleville, Dublin, Harvard, Zurich and Lausanne. He is also an honorary member of the American Institute of Architects and the Royal Institute of British Architects.

Souto de Moura received the 1st Ibero-American Biennial of Architecture prize in 1998, the Pessoa in 1998, the FAD Award for Architecture in 2005, the Pritzker prize in 2011, the Wolf in 2013, and the Piranesi in 2017.
