The Hombroich Foundation Presents "Souto de Moura 1980 - 2015"

The Hombroich Foundation Presents "Souto de Moura 1980 - 2015"

From April 18 until August 24, 2015, the Hombroich Foundation will showcase the work of Pritzker Prize-winning architect Eduardo Souto de Moura. Spanning from his early career in 1980 to the present, the exhibition will explore de Moura’s influential style through models, plans, sketches and photographs. Celebrating such dynamic works as the reconstruction of the Franciscan convent of Santa Maria do Bouro in Amares and the the football stadium Estádio Municipal de Braga, highlighted projects will tell the lifelong story of de Moura’s designs.

Kicking off on April 18 with an opening reception and lecture by de Moura, the exhibition will be on display in the Siza Pavillion at the Hombroich Missile Base. His work epitomizes the trends of contemporary Portuguese architecture, drawing inspiration from the tradition of the Escola do Porto while exploring the convergence of regional design with reduced, modern scale. The exhibition, co-curated with the Association of German Architects BDA, was designed in close collaboration with de Moura himself to best express the architectural process from development to realization.
