Álvaro Siza Vieira, one of the most prominent figures in contemporary Portuguese architecture, is also among today's most influential architects globally. For more than five decades, his work has been internationally recognized for its coherent and thoughtful response to both site and history in context. His projects across the globe are lauded for an intuitive creative drive and innovative spatial experimentation. On this occasion, Siza Vieira presents his project for the Iberê Camargo Museum, in Porto Alegre, Brazil, a work that was recently added to MoMA's collection.
This event is co-organized by The Museum of Modern Art, The Architectural League of New York, and Aicep Portugal Global, with the kind support of Tap-Air Portugal and the St. Regis Hotel.
