Portuguese architect Eduardo Souto de Moura. Twenty recent projects, including all the ones that have been honourably mentioned in the Jury Citation by the Pritzker Committee, have been perfect examples to represent the unique style and design philosophy of Mr. Souto de Moura; and the way he handles materials and values the site as well as history, is phenomenal. According to the Jury, “His buildings have a unique ability to convey seemingly conflicting characteristics– power and modesty, bravado and subtlety, bold public authority and sense of intimacy – at the same time.”

190 x 225 As the name suggests, typographic illustration comprises imagery where the composition is mainly text-based. A piece of work in this genre will often take one word or a short phrase and add enough decorative elements so that the overall impression is as much picture as it is text. Another approach is to form an image using typographic characters in place of brush strokes or pencil marks, so that the image is seen first, and the typography is revealed upon closer inspection. With the unique layers of meaning that can be encoded using typography and illustration in tandem, this new image-making principle is finding popularity in posters and advertising for its ability to capture the interest of its audience.
