The Portuguese architect Eduardo Souto Moura received the Golden Lion, the maximum distinction of the Venice Biennale of Architecture, on Saturday, "for the precision of the pairing of two aerial photographs, revealing the essential relationship between architecture, time and place," the organization said on twitter.
