I meet the Pritzker Architecture Prize, and Portuguese architect Eduardo Souto de Moura in 2008, wen i was visiting in Porto and around, some of his built projects. We met by chance in a cafe, and we talked together. At the end, as a gift, he kindly make, in a piece of paper that he gave me, a drawing representing the Braga stadium. What a pleasant moment, at time i was a simple architecture student meeting one of his idols. (drawing below) MP
