The architect Alvaro Siza Vieira, 1992 Pritzker Prize, which was on Monday 24/10/2011 honorary doctorate from the University of Seville, argued that simplicity is a virtue difficult to achieve and should not be confused with simplification.

“Simplicity is a difficult thing to achieve … it is often interpreted as a simplification, but that’s another thing. Doing a job that is based on removing what is not needed in the architectural expression is a difficult path, both in terms working as attention, “said Siza, as quoted by the Efe agency, in a meeting with the press.

“Not all the architecture must have a simple intention, because there is a difference in cities, between buildings: a public building in the interest of all citizens for their activity, and has by nature a strong expression, but another part of the fabric that makes the city does not have to be worked as a monument, “he claimed.
