Eduardo Souto de Moura was born in Porto, Portugal, in 1952. Throughout his academic studies he collaborated with architects Noé Denis, Álvaro Siza and Fernandes de Sá. After graduating in 1980, he opened his own office. Among numerous other national and international awards, Souto de Moura has received the Pritzker Prize in 2011 or the 'Leone d'Oro' Prize at The Venice Biennale in 2018.
