Eduardo Souto de Moura a 58 year old architect from Portugal, wins Pritzker Architecture Prize 2011. Good news for a small country with about 10,5 Million citizens and... two Pritzker awards!
In announcing the jury’s choice, Pritzker elaborated, “This marks the second time in
the history of the prize that a Portuguese architect has been chosen. The first was in 1992 when
Alvaro Siza was so honored.”
"The purpose of the Pritzker Architecture Prize, which was founded in 1979 by the late Jay A. Pritzker and his wife, Cindy, is to honor annually a living architect whose built work demonstrates a combination of those qualities of talent, vision and commitment, which has produced consistent and significant contributions to humanity and the built environment through the art of architecture. The laureates receive a $100,000 grant and a bronze medallion"

"Historically despised the new Gypsies are there by choice, not heritage. Unrelated to the Roma, the movement began in 1986 when a group of Post-Punk Anti-Thatcher protesters headed out of London into the English countryside. McKell followed these New Age Travellers to the West Country and over the years he watched them become a hybrid tribe - the new gypsies - present-day rural anarchists, living the subversive lifestyle in elaborately decorated horse-drawn caravans."
