hanks for posting the video, JM. I'd missed this architecture awarding in the news. Some of Eduardo's designs make me think of a modern day FL Wright. Congrat's to Eduardo Souto de Moura indeed! What an honour for him and his country.

What a museum! Another good reason to visit Portugal! I would like to know how it feels to be inside a terra cotta pot. An architectural marvel!
