(b. Matosinhos, Portugal 1933)
Siza studied at the University of Porto School of Architecture from 1949 through 1955, and opened his private practice in Porto in 1954.
"Precisely for [the reason that Siza insists on continuous experimentation,] his architecture can communicate to us an extraordinary sense of freedom and freshness; in it one clearly reads the unfolding of an authentic design adventure. In accepting the risks of such adventure, Alvaro Siza has even been able to bring to the surface, in his architecture, what one feared was in danger of extinction: the heroic spirit of modern architecture."
Casabella magazine, July 1986
Recipient of the Pritzker Architecture Prize, 1987.
