Porto Take 1 | June 7, 2009

Arrived safely in Porto, Portugal today and I have to say I´m pretty impressed. I´ve already told my wife we´ll be coming back here, because 3 days isn´t nearly enough. We spent the morning at the Casa da Musica by OMA. Probably the best music hall I´ve ever been to. Totally different from anything you would see around it, but works really well, just neet to step up the buildings around it and it´ll be perfect.

Finally made it over to Siza. I´m sure we´ll get a lot of him this trip, but I think our time here was a little short. We had a concert to get to, so we saw what we could and then left, but it was a really nice space inside and out. I enjoyed the way the structure and the landscape worked together so well.

We finished off the night at the aforementioned concert. I promised myself that I wouldn´t bring a camera so I could just enjoy the evening and experience the music and hall without trying to document anything. Part of me is sorry I followed through with that, but the night was amazing.
