Cultural Center of Viana do Castelo – 6 Aug 2013
Like a low-level Pompidou Centre with the colour taken out. Eduardo Souto de Moura is a difficult architect to pin down – and that is a good thing. Look at the massive difference between say the highly expressive Estadio Municipal de Braga and the sensitive restoration of Bernardas Convent in Tavira. Or between the bold Paula Rêgo Museum and the discreet Cemetery of Hoog-Kortrijk in Belgium. It is no wonder he has won both the Pritzker Prize and the Wolf Prize, his work is questioning, not always pretty, but probing the edges of current architectural language.

Crematorium Uitzicht – 9 Apr 2013
It is a matter of searching for calm and make peace with the impressive landscape of Hoog-Kortrijk. The cemetery of Hoog-Kortrijk is a serene place that folds with the landscape, with plateaus that slip rhythmically over the slope.
