Eduardo Souto de Moura

Architect Eduardo Elisio Machado Souto de Moura (Eduardo Souto) was born in Porto, Portugal on July 25th 1952. Alongside frequent collaborators, Alvaro Siza and Fernando Tavora, he is one of the great references of the Porto School of Architecture.

He was originally studying sculpture before he made the change to architecture at the Faculdade de Arquitectura da Universidade do Porto, from where he graduated in 1980. Before graduation he worked at the practice of Alvaro Siza (from 1974 until 1979) who encouraged Eduardo to begin his own firm. The two still collaborate on projects such as the Portuguese Pavillion at the Expo 2000 in Hanover, Germany; the Serpentine’s Gallery’s summer pavilion in 2004; and, most recently, the Municipal Museum Abade Pedrosa in Porto. His completed projects include private residential houses, schools, shopping centers around the world, such as in Spain, Italy the U.K. and Switzerland. He spent eight years restoring the Santa Maria do Bouro, a 12th century monastery in Amares.

He is professor at the Faculty of Architecture at the University of Porto (his alma mater) as well as visiting professor at the architecture schools of Paris-Belleville, Geneva, Harvard, ETH Zurich and Lausanne and Dublin. In 2011, Souto was awarded the Pritzker Architecture Prize and in 2013 the Wolf Prize in Arts among many other remarkable recognitions.
