Amazing formal and tectonic composition for this project by Pitagoras Arquitectos for an International Arts Centre in Guimarães, Portugal. The use of brass and darkened glass as a facade-skin is a bold move but executed well. The interiors, however, lack the same boldness and seem to be clinical, which is a pity. As an International Arts centre the function could have inspired a more dynamic response.
