New, 1 comment

Said jury chair Lord Palumbo in his usual lordly way: "[de Moura's] buildings have the unique ability to convey seemingly conflicting characteristics—power and modesty, bravado and subtlety, both public authority and a sense of intimacy–at the same time.” [Architect's Newspaper via Curbed NY]
