Alvaro Siza/Architect: Drawings, Models, Photographs, 2006, Installation view

Álvaro Siza/Architect: Drawings, Models, Photographs was the first museum survey in the United States to explore the visionary fifty-year career of preeminent Portuguese architect and Pritzker Prize winner Álvaro Joaquim de Meio Siza Vieira. Designed by Siza himself, the exhibition comprised technical drawings, photographs, models, floor plans, and elevations for five major projects–Mário Bahia House, Gondomar, Portugal (1983); Water Tower, Aveiro, Portugal (1988-1989); Santa Maria Church, Marco de Canaveses, Portugal (1990-1996); The Serpentine Gallery Pavilion in collaboration with Eduardo Souto de Moura, London, England (2005); and Iberê Camargo Foundation, Porto Alegre, Brazil (1998-2006). The exhibition also featured forty original travel sketches, highlighting Siza’s extraordinary talent as a draftsman.
