Eduardo Souto De Moura_Casa Paula Rego

Portuguese, Pritzker Prize winning Architect, Eduardo Souto de Moura completed the exhibition building in 2009. The project references the region's local historical architecture in a contemporary way, using a single red concrete for the entire facade. Sensitive to the pre-existing natural surroundings, it plays with shadows cast by trees on the site. The project is identifiable by its pair of pyramid-shaped towers defining its profile.
