Álvaro Siza Complete Works 1952-2013 From Taschen


From the Boa Nova restaurant in Matosinhosto to the New Orleans tower in Rotterdam, Álvaro Siza Complete Works 1952-2013, from Taschen brings to light one of the great figures of contemporary architecture whose designs are ” a rigorous attempt to capture a concrete moment of a transitory image in all its nuances”.

With an career that spans five decades, there was no shortage of material for author Philip Jodidio in producing this 500 page volume that reveals Siza as a master of deceptive simplicity as expressed through his varied projects that range from swimming pools to housing developments and everything in between including occasional furniture.

The book will be released in mid 2013 and will have a suggested retail of $150 USD.
