Alvaro Siza book: Complete Works by Kenneth Frampton

This monograph is a comprehensive study of Siza’s work, from his early built work - the Boa Nova Tea House, Portugal (1958-63) - to his latest projects. Siza has received critical acclaim for works in Germany (Schlesisches Tor, Berlin), Spain (Galician Centre for Contemporary Art, Santiago de Compostela), Italy (restoration of the Campo di Marte, Venice) and Portugal (Portugese Pavilion at Expo ’98, Lisbon). His projects have been exhibited widely.

Siza’s architecture is vigorous and coherent and distinctively apt to respond to the environment without detracting from its functional and stylistic identity. This book charts over 40 years of work to cover built works, projects, writings, photographs, drawings and many of Siza’s sketches. An extensive introduction by Kenneth Frampton describes the works’ evolution, while writings by Siza himself are interspersed throughout the volume, offering a unique personal perspective to his work and to twentieth-century architecture as a whole.
