Setting the vistas by the 2011 Pritzker Prize laureate.
The Cinema House by Eduardo Souto de Moura is characterised by its paradox geometry. Based on a cubic form, its volume undergoes a set of transformations in order to adjust to the site’s context. The roof is slightly inclined, the exterior outline is squeezed to a trapezoid and two rectangular volumes are extruded like binoculars in order to frame the vistas from the interior.
