The Archaeological Nucleus of São Jorge Castle, at Lisbon, a project conceived by the Portuguese architect João Luís Carrilho da Graça, was distinguished with the Piranesi Prix de Rome 2010. This work, designed in collaboration with the landscape architect João Gomes da Silva, was selected from among 18 other nominated works. The Archaeological Nucleus combines traces from three very different historic epochs: Islamic Period, Iron Age and the ruins of the Counts of Santiago Palace that crumbled during the great 1755 earthquake
