Casa da Música
One of Porto’s leading cultural venues, designed by the architect, Rem Koolhaas.
At Rotunda da Boavista, half way between the historic centre and Foz area, near the sea, we see a large-scale, daringly original building that is sure to catch anyone’s attention: the Casa da Música (“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.
