Thoughts on Siza Vieira

Event Slider

Five architects come together to discuss the work of Álvaro Siza Vieira and his international influence, in the context of the Siza exhibition.


A reference in world architecture and urbanism, the work of Álvaro Siza Vieira is analysed by five internationally renowned architects in two talks moderated by the exhibition’s curator Carlos Quintáns.

Based on the exhibition, which brings together original material from the architect’s archives and other international collections, Jan De Vylder, Juan Domingo Santos, Maruša Zorec, Nuno Grande and Paula Santos will discuss different aspects of Siza’s work, that can be seen from a distance or from close proximity, and talk about their continuous contact with the architect’s work throughout their own careers.
