O Porto!

Well, I’ve been in Porto for the last few days and you haven’t heard a peep from me. Sorry about that, but all this sun, sea and well architecture has kept me busy! The highlight of the past few days has definitely been Casa da Musica by Rem Koolhaas/OMA (2005). It features on a list of the top five contemporary architecture pieces you must see (i’ve got three of the five now; The Gherkin, and the Neues Museum Berlin). But it’s a stunning building and very representative of Koolhass. Wandering around its labyrinth it reminded me very much of his Seattle Public Library. If you’re in Portugal, its worth a visit.
