Portuguese Sensibilty

Two of my favorite architects are Alvaro Siza (1992 Pritzker Price winner) and Eduardo Souto de Moura (2011 Pritzker Prize Recepient) from Portugal. Architects Aires Mateus are quickly joining their rank of great Portuguese Architects. Above a House for the Elderly they did in Alcácer do Sal, Portugal. We recently posted about their windowless house Casa em Leiria.
