Porto's Casa da Musica Complete

The link may not be active for long (and registration is required) but the 10 April New York Times has an article on the Casa da Musica in Porto, Portugal: "Rem Koolhaas Learns Not to Overthink It". A slide show accompanies the article.

AIACE member Ray Spano, AIA adds, in an email highlighting the article:

I'm proud to say I saw it under construction, thanks to you, Pedro [Balonas]! Congratulations to Koolhaas and the people of Porto for succeeding in this incredible undertaking.
The Porto Conference of 2004, as organized by Pedro Balonas, Int'l. Assoc. AIA, was cited specifically by Hans Buchwald as the model for his organization of the May 2005 Helsinki Conference.
