Architecture Talk

Eduardo Souto de Moura and Richard Sennett in conversation with Ricky Burdett

Eduardo Souto de Moura worked with celebrated Portuguese architect Álvaro Siza from 1974 to 1979 and established his own architectural practice in 1980, which attracted great attention both inside and outside of Portugal. He has completed a wide range of projects, including ambitious private houses such as Two Houses at Ponte de Lima 2001-02. Souto de Moura’s celebrated public projects include the Braga Stadium 2004; a new complex in Milan, Quarto Oggiaro, 2001; Casa del Cine ‘Manoel de Oliveira’ Oporto, 1998-2000; the Museum of Transportation in Oporto, 1993-95; the Department of Geology building at the University of Aveiro, 1990-94 and the Central Market in Braga, 1980-84. The Serpentine Gallery Pavilion 2005 designed with Álvaro Siza and Cecil Balmond – Arup is his first built structure in the UK.

Richard Sennett is a sociologist and the School Professor of Social and Cultural Theory at the LSE and at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology.

Sennett was closely involved in the Mayors' Institute in the USA which has inspired the European Mayors' Conference organised by the LSE Cities Programme. His publications include Respect (2003), The Corrosion of Character (1998) and The Fall of Public Man (1996).
