Casa da Música
One of Oporto’s leading cultural venues, designed by the architect, Rem Koolhaas.
In the Rotunda da Boavista roundabout, half way between the historic centre centre and the Foz zone, we encounter a large-scale, daringly original building that is sure to catch anyone’s attention: the Casa da Música or “House of Music”. The building was designed by the distinguished Dutch architect and urbanist, Rem Koolhaas and was conceived in order to cater to an innovative cultural project of Porto 2001-European Capital of Culture.
The building, with its bold architecture, is designed to host all types of music – from classical to electronic, jazz to fado, major international productions to small-scale experimental projects. The site prides itself on the quality of its infrastructures and its dynamic, innovative and prestigious programming.
