Three days ago The 2011 Pritzker Prize for Architecture was awarded to Portuguese architect, Eduardo Souto de Moura.

The 58-year-old's work was described by Lord Palumbo, the jury's chairman, as "...of our time but also carries echoes of architectural traditions."

de Moura was a student of Alvaro Siza, who was Portugal's first Pritzker winner in 1992. Some of de Moura's buildings include the Braga (Portugal) Stadium and the Burgo Tower.

The winner, usually a closely guarded secret until the prestigious awards dinner, was leaked when it was announced the President Obama will attend tonight's event at the Andrew W. Mellon Auditorium in Washington, D.C.
