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".
