Diogo de Sousa who, through his “visionary door”, opened Braga to the world.

The jury's decision highlights the "rigorous observation of the objectives formulated in the terms of reference, valuing the way in which the awarded work is inserted in the urban context and also for its contemporary expression. The work reflects the timeless dimension of the Archbishop, with a contemporary language but that has a deep aesthetic meaning that intends to have an impact on the place ", adds the councilman responsible for the Heritage area.
