Portuguese architect Eduardo Souto de the 2011 Pritzker Prize laureate.

The “conscious inspiration” Signs :

1. Both buildings deal with the “Edge of the cliff”.

2. The buildings are designed in a unique simplicity:

Sealed envelope, transparent façade.

3. The building Deliberate in a Clear direction.

4. Significant source of inspiration:

A hand with fingers, with a fragmented shape.
