About the Designerlvaro Siza
Portugal (1933 - )
Siza was born in the town of Matosinhos, near Oporto, Portugal, in 1933. He studied architecture at the Escola de Belas Artes in Oporto from 1949 to 1955, and his first design was built in 1954. From 1955 to 1958, he worked with architect Fernando Tavora. Through the 1950s, Siza developed several projects in Matosinhos, including private houses, a Parochial Center, a Tourist Office, and a low-cost housing project as well as the acclaimed Boa Nova restaurant (1958-63; renovated 1992) and a public swimming pool in Leca da Palmeira (1958-65). These early projects indicated Siza's characteristic ability to integrate his designs with the distinct qualities of their environments
In 1966, Siza joined the faculty at the School of Architecture in Oporto (ESBAP), and in 1976 he was appointed Assistant Professor of Construction. Through the 1960s and early 1970s, he continued to design private houses as well as commercial buildings near Oporto. His second swimming pool for Leca da Palmeira displays his brilliant use of space. The design uses a natural rock formation to complement the man-made sides of a large pool placed as if carved out of the sand and rock of the coastline. A smaller children's pool, changing building, and cafe are also included, and the building is set below the level of the access road to provide an uninterrupted view of the ocean. Jos? Paulo dos Santos has noted in his Alvaro Siza: Works and Projects 1954-1992 that the design contains formal references to Finnish architect Alvar Aalto and to neoclassicist architecture.
