It has been announced that Casa da Musica, situated in the historical centre of Porto has won the European Award from the Royal Institute of British Architects (RIBA). This prestigious prize is awarded yearly for outstanding contributions to architectural design in Europe. The Jurors described Casa da Musica as "intriguing, disquieting and dynamic". The building contains two shoe box shaped auditoriums, the voids created by these two concert spaces is used as a public space with 8 rehearsal rooms, IT and educational facilities, a music shop and rooms with recording facilities. The uniqueness of this building is also expressed through its concrete and glass faceted exterior, complete with an intimate roof terrace that offers views over the city of Porto.
