DESCRIPTION OF STUDIO

Eduardo Souto de Moura studied in the School of Fine Arts in Porto, where he was later a professor. He has also given lectures at universities in Paris-Belleville, Harvard, Dublin, Navarra, Zurich and Lausanne.

He is influenced by architects such as Álvaro Siza, Noé Dinis and Fernandes de Sá with whom he collaborated. His architecture is characterised by minimalism and a deep context-sensitivity. In all of his projects, he aims to facilitate the lives of the people who surround his work whilst affecting the environmental impact as little as possible. His choice of materials is meticulous, usually combining concrete, stone, wood and aluminium.

He received several prizes and awards, in particular, the 2011 Pritzker Prize and the 2013 Wolf Prize.

NAME OF EXHIBITION SPACE

Vivienda mínima-mínimal

DEFINITION OF EXHIBITION SPACE

For the L’Antic Colonial showroom, Eduardo Souto de Moura has designed a perfectly habitable 25m2 home. This space seeks its inhabitant’s commodity and comfort by using very clear and pure lines.

With regard to the layout, the main dividing element that stands out as it separates the public areas (kitchen and living room) from the more private rooms (bedroom and bathroom).

As far as materials go, Eduardo Souto de Moura has combined large format parquet and a natural finish as a flooring and part of the walls with a very neutral white marble for the rest of the covering.
